(WVVA) A Princeton man was convicted of a federal drug crime.

Jarmaine Jones, 30, admitted to selling cocaine on multiple occasions. He was caught in March after dealing cocaine to a confidential informant near Bluewell. Drug task force officers found more of the narcotic, along with two pistols, during the subsequent search of Jones’ Princeton residence.

Jones faces 20 years in federal prison. His sentencing hearing was scheduled for January 31.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John File handled the prosecution and Senior U.S. District Judge David Fabor presided over the plea hearing.
