Six sentenced on drug charges

EASTERN KENTUCKY (WYMT) - The leader of a drug ring which distributed more than 100,000 pills in eastern Kentucky will spend 235 months in prison.

46-year-old Darmus Balton and five co-defendants were sentenced on Tuesday after being convicted earlier this year for conspiring to distribute Oxycodone.

The six defendants in the case were also ordered to pay back a combined $360,000 they gained from the crime.
