Sep. 19, 2013 @ 07:33 AM

WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — A former teacher and girls’ basketball coach from Marshall County has been sentenced to a 30-month prison term for her conviction on heroin distribution charges.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said 27-year-old Amanda Allison of Cameron was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Wheeling. She was also sentenced to three years of supervised release.

Allison admitted she conspired to sell heroin between January and April of this year. She has been handed over to the U.S. Marshal Service until her assignment to a federal prison.

Allison is the former junior varsity girls’ basketball coach at Cameron High School.
