Following his indictment, Boulet pleaded guilty to the delivery. Last week in Circuit Court, he was sentenced to one – five years in prison. However, the court suspended the prison sentence, and Boulet received probation for 36 months.

Roxanne Balentine, 40 from Foster was sentenced to probation following a hearing in Boone County Circuit Court Wednesday, February 15.

Balentine was indicted for multiple counts of credit card fraud by a Boone County Grand Jury in April 2016.

The indictment arose from an investigation by the West Virginia State Police that found that Balentine obtained a credit card in the name of a relative and made numerous purchases at businesses throughout Boone County.

Balentine pleaded guilty in January to the felony offense of fraud in connection with an access device, otherwise known as credit card fraud. At her sentencing hearing Wednesday, February 15, Balentine was sentenced to 10 years in prison. However, the sentence was suspended and Balentine received five years of probation; she was ordered to pay $1,376.43 in restitution to the victim.

During the investigation, members of the Task Force were able to make controlled purchases of heroin and methamphetamine from Mullins. After completing the investigation, Mullins was indicted by a Boone County Grand Jury.

Court records show that Mullins was convicted in 2014 for the felony offense of delivery of a controlled substance. Following that conviction, Mullins successfully completed the probationary period granted to him by the Court.

In the current case, Mullins pleaded guilty last December to the felony offense of delivery of heroin. At sentencing last week, the Court ordered Mullins to prison. He will serve a prison sentence of one – 15 years.
