    Former Sheriff Headed to Federal Prison

    BECKLEY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The former sheriff of Mercer County was sentenced to six month in a federal prison on Thursday.

    Federal prosecutors say Danny Ray Wills, 63, of Bluefield, who is also a medical doctor, pleaded guilty in August to fraudulently obtaining and possessing hydrocodone.

    According to court documents, Wills admitted that while he was sheriff, he ordered and obtained 4,500 hydrocodone pills from a Virginia company and paid for them with proceeds from the Mercer County Concealed Weapons Permit Fund.

    Wills had the pills shipped to the sheriff’s office in Princeton. The hydrocodone was to be dispensed to "patients."

    Wills admitted to agents that he had been taking up to 4 to 6 of the hydrocodone pills daily for about two years.
    I'm pretty sure that he broke a gun law somewhere...

    Seems like a pretty light sentence to me. I would given 15 years.

    He might have been hooked, but they definitely need to reel his butt in. 6 months? Had that been any of us we'd be in for every charge they could find in the book.

    Yep, that reminds me a video I saw yesterday when I went to live leak from the forum. There was another video there about DA Clay "Boss" Ballman <sp> who was in his car drunk after he ahd commited a hit and run. The cops beg him for 8 minutes to get out of the car in very sof and ginger voice. Just that had me thinking the same thing "what if that was me". Worse yet he was never charged with the hit and run and got a light sentence for the DUI and was later found in the court house parking lot drunk. They took him home in a county car.

    Back on topic: So, for those that ask are there two set of rules. Apprently in some cases the answer is yes.
