Fayetteville man sentenced for drug distribution

 

A Fayetteville man was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court to serve three years’ probation for cocaine distribution.

Gerald Wayne Hopkins, 52, a mine safety instructor, admitted that on Feb. 1, 2012, he sold 2.94 grams of cocaine to an individual cooperating with law enforcement authorities.

Hopkins also admitted that the illegal distribution took place at his Fayetteville residence, where he conducted his mine safety training courses.

U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver Jr. also ordered Hopkins to pay a $500 fine.

West Virginia State Police conducted the investigation, and Assistant U.S. Attorney John File handled the prosecution.
