HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The leader of an alleged drug ring in Huntington will be sentenced in August for selling cocaine, oxycodone, heroin, MDMA and marijuana out of a Cabell County home for years.
Kenneth Dewitt Newman, also known as “K-Kutta,” 32, of Huntington, plead guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Huntington to possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine when he’s sentenced on Aug. 25.
Federal prosecutors said Newman lead a drug ring that involved more than a dozen others — including his mother and brother. All of his alleged associates have now been indicted for their various alleged roles in the ring that centered on Newman’s Artisan Ave. home.
The arrests were the results of an investigation from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team and the Huntington Police Department.
