A Fayette County couple was sentenced to federal prison for selling oxycodone. 

That is according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin's office.

Gary Stover, 34, of Kincaid, Fayette County was sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison.   Stover previously pleaded guilty in November 2012 to distribution of oxycodone.   Stover admitted that on March 21, 2012, he sold three 30-milligram oxycodone pills to an individual cooperating with law enforcement authorities.  Stover further admitted that he is responsible for distributing a total of approximately 1000 30-milligram pills. 

Stover's co-defendant, Jamie L. Foster, 26, was sentenced to three months in federal prison, followed by nine months of home confinement, for aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone.  Foster previously pleaded guilty in October 2012.  Foster admitted that on April 16, 2012, she sold two 30-milligram oxycodone pills to an individual cooperating with law enforcement authorities. 

Foster and Stover shared a residence near Kincaid, Fayette County, at the time the illegal pill transactions occurred.
