Berkeley County man, Herman Govan sentenced to 12 years for selling fentanyl

Herman Terrell Govan, of Inwood, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 151 months incarceration for selling fentanyl, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

“Fentanyl continues to kill people across the country.  The defendant has learned that bringing it into Berkeley County has significant consequences,” said Powell.

Govan, age 35, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Fentanyl” in April 2019. Govan admitted to selling fentanyl in January 2018 in Berkeley County.

This case is the result of investigations supported by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) under the Attorney General-led Synthetic Opioid Surge (SOS)/Special Operations Division (SOD) Project Clean Sweep.  This initiative seeks to reduce the supply of synthetic opioids in “hot spot” areas previously identified by the Attorney General of the United States, thereby reducing drug overdoses and drug overdose deaths, and identify wholesale distribution networks and sources of supply operating nationally and internationally.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy D. Helman prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Eastern Panhandle Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gina M. Groh presided.
