Two Nicholas County men were sentenced to federal prison Tuesday for their involvement in a methamphetamine ring involving seven others.
In separate proceedings Tuesday, U.S. District Judge John Copenhaver sentenced Roy Spinks Sr., 59, of Craigsville, and Michael Boley, 31, of Summersville, each to two years in prison. They pleaded guilty in August to conspiring to make meth, according to a statement by U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.
Spinks admitted allowing Felicia Bess, 23, of Summersville, to use his Kyler Road home to make meth, the statement said.
Boley also cooked meth at the home, as well as other locations around the county from October 2010 to June 2011.
Bess was sentenced in February to three years in prison for her part. Roy Spinks Jr., 39, of Craigsville, was sentenced that same month to six years in prison on a charge of making a residence available for making meth.
Bess and the younger Spinks worked together and used the "shake and bake" method. Roy Spinks Jr. also told police he made meth at homes around Nicholas County.
Bratten Smith, 28, of Richwood, was sentenced to two years in prison in February. He supplied pseudoephedrine and other ingredients and helped Bess and the younger Spinks cook meth at a Nicholas County home. They gave him drugs in exchange for supplies.
Other sentences were handed down earlier this year. Shannon Ellison was sentenced to three and a half years, Jennifer Curry to two, Rachel Petrey to five years and 10 months, and Terry Mullins to four years and three months.
