Judge gives 1-5 years on two Marion County drug charges

FAIRMONT — A man involved with two drug cases in Marion County has been sentenced to prison.

Dante Adam Williams of Lansing, Michigan, was sentenced Monday to one to five years in prison.

Williams was arrested in Marion County in January 2013 for possession with intent to deliver marijuana and again in June 2013 on the same charges. He also faces drug charges in Monongalia County.

In January 2013, Williams was arrested in Marion County after a law enforcement officer pulled him over on Interstate 79 for speeding. Officers said they could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

In June 2013, Williams was arrested at a Marion County residence after officers said a search of the residence found marijuana, a scale and cash.

Marion County Circuit Judge David Janes sentenced Williams on the two charges Monday.

Williams has been sentenced to one to five years in prison for his January 2013 arrest and one to five years in prison for his June 2013 arrest.

Janes said the sentences will run concurrently and Williams will be credited for time served. Williams has been in prison for six months.

Williams pled guilty to possession with intent to deliver marijuana in May 2014.
