Ex-Police Officer Charged in Oxycodone Scheme

A former Tennessee constable has been given 10 years behind bars for conspiring to distribute oxycodone pills.

News outlets report Bobby Roy Justice was sentenced Monday in Kentucky. Justice had been charged with possessing drugs and conspiring to sell pain pills between 2009 and August 2014.

A federal investigation revealed that Justice imported more than 90,000 oxycodone pills in the Pike County, Kentucky, area.

Justice had been serving as a constable in Dandridge, Tennessee, before his indictment. He has since resigned from that post.
