Cabell Co. man sentenced to federal prison for illegal drugs and firearms


A Cabell County man has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison for illegally selling prescription pain killers and firearms, according to U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.

Kenneth Lee Sergent, 41, of Huntington entered a guilty plea in May to felony possession of a firearm and distribution of Oxycodone. Sergent sold a .22 caliber revolver to an informant in May 2011, according to a press release from Goodwin's office. He also sold the informant Oxycodone pills for $60.00.

On two separate occasions, Sergent sold the informant illegal firearms. He was previously convicted of grand larceny in November1990. Sergent did not have his rights to possess a firearm restored.

The Huntington Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) conducted the investigation.
