Worley enters plea in federal drug case

Anderson scheduled to appear Thursday

LONDON —  A pair of McCreary Countians may face federal prison time with the pending resolution of their case.

    Last October, Robert Darrell “Bobby” Worley and Tonya Lee Anderson were jointly indicted by a federal grand jury on charges they conspired “together and with others to knowingly and intentionally distribute” oxycodone pills between January 2012 through October 4 2013.

    Worley, 48, of Pine Knot, was individually charged with possessing a .32-caliber Colt revolver in furtherance of a drug-trafficking offense while Anderson, 43, also of Pine Knot was individually charged as a previously convicted felon possessing a New England Arms 20-gauge shotgun, a Mosin-Nagant 8mm caliber rifle and a .32-caliber Colt revolver.

    On February 27, Worley pled guilty to both the conspiracy and weapons charges. An additional joint count of oxycodone possession on October 4 was dismissed in exchange for Worley’s guilty plea. He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 26 at the U.S. District Court at London.

    Meanwhile Anderson is scheduled to be re-arraigned this Thursday afternoon, which could indicate that she too has reached a plea agreement.
