Putnam County, WV man sentenced to 18 years in prison for oxycodone distribution


A 50-year-old Putnam County man was sentenced Tuesday to 18 years in prison for selling prescription painkillers. Terry Lee Hagan, of Culloden, pleaded guilty in August to distribution of oxycodone. Hagan's sentence was handed down by Chief United States District Judge Robert Chambers in federal court in Huntington.

On May 29, 2012, Hagan sold four 30-milligram and two 15-milligram oxycodone pills to a confidential informant. The sales price was $225 according to a news release from the U.S. Attorneys Office. The sale took place at Hagan's house in Culloden.

Hagan admitted that he was responsible for a number of other illegal oxycodone sales that took place in and around the southern West Virginia.

Hagan was previously convicted of five felonies between May 1981 and April 2012 in the Circuit Court of Common Pleas, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.
