CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — A Monongalia County woman pleaded guilty to using a phone in an attempt to sell painkillers.

Holly Jo Exline, 22, of Dellslow, will be sentenced at a later date on one count of unlawful use of communication facility for attempting to distribute oxycodone by phone in Feb. 2017 in Monongalia County. She was one of 33 indicted in June in an oxycodone distribution ring that spanned from West Virginia to Detroit, Michigan.

Kansco and Cuppet both pleaded guilty to distributing oxycodone earlier this month. They each face up to 20 years and a fine of up to $1,000,000. Kansco admitted to selling oxycodone in Upshur County in June 2015. Cuppet admitted to selling oxycodone in Monongalia County in September 2015.
