January 10, 2008

(AP) A Tennessee man and a Virginia woman were sentenced to 20 years in prison for operating what a federal judge in Abingdon said was one of the largest drug rings he has ever seen in southwest Virginia.

Prosecutors said Joey Franklin Phillips, of Bristol, Tennessee,
and Stephanie Heather Osborne, of Cedar Bluff, sold about $1.8
million worth of OxyContin over six years.

U.S. District Judge James Jones convicted each of them of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and distribution of oxycodone. The two had been under investigation for several years by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
