Ohio Man Pleads Guilty in Pike County Drug Trafficking Plea Deal

An Ohio man captured last year in Pike County after being wanted for trafficking meth in Virginia has pleaded guilty. Pierre Lidge was arrested in June by Kentucky State Police following a tip from Virginia State Police who had recorded him selling meth to an informant. Mountain Top News reports KSP troopers found him in Stopover with 83 grams of meth and $1,100 in cash. This week he pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm in connection with drug trafficking but as part of the plea deal faces just the minimum 10 years when he is sentenced in the fall.
