Huntington woman sentenced to federal prison for dealing crack cocaine

Posted: Updated:

A federal judge has sentenced Huntington resident Cory Lynn McCourt to 18 months in prison for possession with intent to deliver cocaine base, more commonly known as crack cocaine.

McCourt pleaded guilty in October to the federal drug violation.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said officers responding to a domestic violence call at McCourt's home in Huntington in May 2010 observed a tan, chunky substance they believed to be crack on her sofa. Upon questioning, they said McCourt admitted the crack belonged to her and that she'd been selling it for five months.

McCourt shared the residence with Brandon Golson, who in January was sentenced to seven years and three months in federal prison for distribution of heroin, crack and oxycodone pills in the Huntington area.
