Carl Tomblin, governor's brother, to plead guilty to drug charge
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's brother will plead guilty to a federal drug charge, according to recent court documents.
Carl Tomblin, 50, of Chapmanville, was charged with illegally distributing prescription painkillers, according to a federal information filed earlier this week.
The information said Tomblin illegally distributed oxymorphone, a generic form of Opana, on or about Dec. 6 in Chapmanville.
Federal prosecutors filed a motion Thursday to schedule a guilty plea for Tomblin.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Haley Bunn is handling the prosecution.
