HUNTINGTON - Two Huntington men pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal drug charge, according to U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart.

Antonio Whitehead, 31, and Richard Board III, 21, entered guilty pleas to an indictment charging them with aiding and abetting the distribution of methamphetamine.

Whitehead admitted that on Nov. 15, 2017, he met a confidential informant at Board’s residence in Huntington. The informant gave Board $1,000 for an ounce of methamphetamine. Board then gave Whitehead the money and Whitehead gave the informant approximately 28 grams of methamphetamine.

Whitehead and Board both face up to 20 years in federal prison when they are sentenced on Dec. 17, 2018.

The plea hearing was held before U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie S. Taylor handled the prosecution.
