A 27-year-old Windsor, Maryland, man faces up to 20 years in prison for his leading role in a heroin trafficking ring that distributed the drug in West Virginia, Virginia and elsewhere.

The government says Brian Alexander Hall entered a guilty plea to a conspiracy count Thursday in federal court in Martinsburg. Besides a prison term, he also could be fined up to $1 million.

Federal prosecutors say Hall "orchestrated" the multi-state heroin distribution network. The government says it hobbled the illegal enterprise in June with the arrest of 41 people.

Hall's sentencing hasn't been scheduled.
