Elderly Pike County Man Sentenced

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...Seventy-nine year old Donnie “D.K.” Kinder of Mouthcard was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty in March to a charge of conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone pills as part of a Michigan to Kentucky pill pipeline. Investigators say Kinder sold between 4,000 and 4,500 Oxycodone pills each month in Pike County for more than a year. U.S. District Judge Amul said Kinder had two previous convictions on Oxycodone trafficking charges in state court, and the amount he admitted to selling shows it wasn't a small operation.
