Two Bluefield area men have been sentenced to federal prison for dealing drugs.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says Leonard Graves III, 31, of Bluefield, Va., was sentenced to 18 months behind bars for distribution of oxycodone.

Earlier this year Graves pleaded guilty to distributing 20 oxycodone pills in the Bluefield area to a person cooperating with police in September. As part of his plea, Graves admitted that he sold a total of 269 oxycodone pills.

Jermaine Holland, 31, of Bluefield, WV was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for distribution of hydromorphone.

Holland pleaded guilty in December to selling two hydromorphone pills to a person cooperating with police. Holland also admitted that he sold several additional hydromorphone pills, and that he possessed two guns that he kept near the drugs and money he earned from selling drugs.

The cases were investigated by the Southern West Virginia Drug and Violent Crime Task Force and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John File.
