Two men have been sentenced for their roles in a multistate drug trafficking operation.

Thirty-two-year-old Juwan Robert Woods of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was sentenced to seven years and seven months in prison. Twenty-five-year-old Terri Shuttlesworth of Fairmont received a 10-month sentence.

Woods had pleaded guilty in April to aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone without 1,000 feet of a playground in Monongalia County. Shuttlesworth had pleaded guilty in February to distributing oxycodone.

Both men were sentenced on Friday in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg. They are among 21 people charged in a federal indictment in November 2014.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Monday that the trafficking operation transported heroin and oxycodone from Philadelphia to Morgantown for redistribution and sale.
