Valley Grove meth dealer facing 20 years in federal prison

VALLEY GROVE, WEST VIRGINIA – Mark Joseph Dobrzynski, of Valley Grove, West Virginia, is facing drug trafficking charges, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Dobrzynski, 58, was indicted on three counts of “Distribution of Methamphetamine” and one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine.” Dobrzynski is accused of selling methamphetamine in December 2019 and October 2020 in Ohio County. He is also accused of having methamphetamine in November 2020 in Ohio County.

Dobrzynski faces up to 20 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000,000 for each count. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn M. Adkins is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Ohio Valley Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
