Thirty Sentenced in Federal Drug Cases
When Terry Smith was sentenced in federal court last week it marked the end of three high profile drug cases that were centered in Clay County. Jimmy Benge and Eugene Slone were also charged with being the head of similar drug rings. All three men were also charged with murder, Smith in the overdose death of Pat Smallwood, while Benge and Slone were charged with having drug informants killed. Benge and Smith have appealed their cases.
