March 22, 2021 – The D invaded Appalachia and as if Raylan Givens himself was at the forefront of the resistance, Appalachia won.
Detroit drug kingpin Curtis (C-Low) Watson was sentenced to 25 years in prison for heroin trafficking, gun offenses and witness tampering by a federal judge in Charleston, West Virginia last week. Watson, 52, was nailed in a November 2018 indictment.
On the first day of his trial in the summer of 2019, Watson ran into a witness in the hallway of the courtroom and shouted, “I got you, I got u (the next time I see you).” That witness refused to testify in fear for their safety.
Motor City drug crews have been operating in West Virginia for decades. Watson was found guilty at a January 2020 trial in Charleston. Prosecutors estimated he was clearing more than $50,000 a day trafficking heroin throughout Southern West Virginia.
