MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A 21-year-old Martinsburg man faces up to 20 years in prison after being convicted Thursday in U.S. District Court on federal drug trafficking charges.
A jury found Jason J. Smith, of 123 W. John St., guilty on one count of criminal conspiracy to distribute cocaine, according to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia. Prosecutors said the offenses took place between January 1990 and April of this year.
In addition to the prison sentence, Smith could be fined a maximum of $1 million. A pre-sentence investigation will be conducted before he is sentenced, according to a court official.
