A Cabell County man who illegally sold prescription painkillers and several firearms pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges. Kenneth Lee Sergent, 40, of Huntington, entered a guilty plea to being a felon in possession of a firearm and distribution of oxycodone.

Sergent sold a .22 caliber revolver to a confidential informant working in cooperation with the Huntington Police Department in May 2011. Sergent also sold the confidential informant two 30-milligram oxycodone pills. Similar transactions took place in June and August of the same year.

Sergent had been convicted of a felony in November 1990 in Cabell County. Sergent faces up to 10 years in prison on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and up to 20 years in prison on the oxycodone distribution charge. He also faces a $1,250,000 fine when he is sentenced on August 5.
