Posted on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 11:39 am

Anthony “Tony” Bosio appeared in the United States District, London, Kentucky, on Monday, for sentencing in his guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute Schedule II controlled substances, to include oxycodone.
Bosio received a 60 month prison sentence during which time he must undergo substance abuse counseling. Upon release, he will be on three years of supervised probation. Recitation has not yet been ordered.
Plea agreement
The essential elements of Bosio’s plea included that “two or more persons conspired or agreed to distribute Schedule II controlled substances, to include oxycodone, and the defendant knowingly joined in this conspiracy.”
Establishing facts
“On or about a day in December 2010, and continuing through on or about a day in October 2015, in Knox County, in the Eastern district of Kentucky, and elsewhere, the Defendant agreed with other people to distribute controlled substances, including a quantity of pills containing oxycodone, a Schedule II controlled substance.
“During the conspiratorial timeframe, the Defendant worked with Robert Nunley, Christopher Land, Randy Stiefel, Jamie Sweeton, Kenneth Britton, James Robert Jones, and Tony Britton, among others, to obtain and sell pills containing Schedule II and Schedule III controlled substances from his co-conspirators, knowing that his co-conspirators had stolen those pills from various pharmacies throughout the southern United States, including in the Eastern District of Kentucky. The defendant sold those pills and shared the proceeds of such sales with his co-conspirators.”
With his plea, Bosio waived the right to appeal the guilty plea and conviction.
Land sentencing continued
Christopher “Puff” Land was scheduled to be sentenced on the same day, but his sentencing was continued until February 5. The motion to continue came from his attorney who is dealing with sick family member and needs additional time to prepare for sentencing and file a sentencing memorandum.
