CHARLESTON — Carl Tomblin of Chapmanville has pleaded guilty to charges of selling the powerful prescription painkiller oxymorphone, commonly sold under the brand name Opana.

Tomblin, 50, was accused of selling oxymorphone to a confidential informant in exchange for cash on five separate occasions in December of 2013. Tomblin admitted to law enforcement that he had been purchasing and distributing oxymorphone from approximately May of 2013 through January of 2014.

Tomblin tested positive for the drug Benzodiazepine, commonly known as Valium or Xanax. As a result, the court ordered Tomblin released on home confinement with electronic monitoring.

Tomblin faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on June 25.
