More Than 30 Defendants Indicted on Prescription Pill Charges in Historic Drug Sweep
Date:10/29/2009

LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Attorney's Office announced today that 36 individuals face various federal prescription pill charges as part of the largest drug sweep operation in Kentucky's history.

As part of the indictment, the United States is seeking the forfeiture of approximately a million dollars worth of assets that include the defendants' vehicles, real estate, a boat, and a bank account which were properties or entities used to facilitate the illegal activity.

Of those charged federally, 52-year-old James Marsillett II faces the most serious charge. The indictment alleges that Marsillett organized and managed a criminal enterprise that lasted from 2005 to 2008 which involved 13 other defendants who traveled to Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida to obtain methadone and oxycodone pills to sell in Pike, Johnson and Floyd counties.
