A 55-year-old Gilmer, Texas man has been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.

Paul Allen Wigington pleaded guilty on July 12, 2013 to possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin and was sentenced to six months in federal prison on Aug. 20, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Rodney Gilstrap.

According to information presented in court, on Aug. 23, 2012, Wigington distributed approximately 2.2 grams of a mixture containing heroin to another person in exchange for $500.  Wigington admitted to purchasing the heroin from co-defendant, Cynthia Blaylock, at her Upshur County home.  A federal grand jury returned an indictment on Mar. 27, 2013, charging Wigington and eight others with drug trafficking violations.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Gilmer Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Ann Cozby.
