Drug dealing couple sentenced

Posted: Updated:
HAVELOCK, N.C. -

An Eastern North Carolina couple has been sentenced on drug charges.

On July 9, 2013 James Howard Maynor, 28, of Havelock, North Carolina, was convicted upon his guilty plea to several felony drug offenses including Trafficking in Opium and Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud or Forgery. Maynor is sentenced to an active prison term of 90-117 months, followed by another active term of 12-20 months in the North Carolina Division of Adult Corrections. Upon his release from prison, he will be placed on probation for 48 months on a 6-8 month suspended sentence.

On August 20, 2013 Casey Ann Williams, 31, of Havelock, North Carolina, was convicted upon her guilty plea to several felony drug offenses including Trafficking in Opium and Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud or Forgery. A judge sentenced Williams to an active prison term of 90-117 months in the North Carolina Division of Adult Corrections. Upon her release from prison, she will be placed on probation for 36 months on two 6-8 month suspended sentences.

Williams and Maynor were arrested along with 14 other suspects in early 2012 following an investigation by the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office and the SBI Drug Diversion Unit. Williams who worked in several different doctors’ offices stole prescription pads and she and Maynor would then forge the prescriptions and sell them for approximately $400 per prescription. Over 6,000 dosage units of Percocet were diverted by the activities of the suspects involved in this case.

Sheriff Asa Buck said in a release, “Hopefully the sentences imposed in this case and others will send the message that it is not worth the risk to engage in prescription drug diversion. Those who choose to engage in this activity can be assured that we will investigate and prosecute them.”

District Attorney Scott Thomas said in the release, "Sheriff Buck and his investigators along with the State Bureau of Investigation are to be commended for their work in the investigation of this group of drug dealers. Their work made it possible for my office to successfully prosecute these cases and get guilty pleas entered. Maynor and Williams both received long prison sentences based upon the role as the primary participants in this drug network. Prescription Drug Fraud and Diversion is a serious crime and we will continue to treat it as such in our prosecution of these offenses."
