Braselton man among 13 sentenced in Oxycodone case – Access North Georgia

ATLANTA – A Braselton man was sentenced to three years probation Monday in a case involving 11 other defendants in a conspiracy prosecutors say involved over 30,000 Oxycodone pills.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta, the ringleader, 29 year old Kristen Noelle Goduta of Marietta, made fake prescriptions for the pills and recruited others to pass them.

The defendant from Braselton, 30 year old Justin Howard, was convicted in 2011.

Goduta got 14 years behind bars followed by 5 years of supervised release.

“These defendants exhibited total disregard for how their pill peddling could destroy lives,” United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said.
