A Washington Parish jury found Henry James McMillan, 66, of Angie, guilty Thursday, April 20, of distribution of oxycodone during an undercover operation two years ago. He is scheduled to be sentenced on May 8 by pro tem Judge Donald Fendlason.

According to information released by the office of District Attorney Warren Montgomery, McMillan was arrested after selling four Oxycontin pills at his home to a confidential informant for the Washington Parish Drug Task Force, which videotaped the transaction on July 29, 2015.

The informant also gave $10 to McMillan’s co-defendant, William Kennedy, for arranging the meeting. Kennedy previously had pleaded guilty to attempted distribution of oxycodone on Oct . 10, 2016, and received a suspended sentence of 10 years in prison and five years of probation with drug treatment. He testified against McMillan at the trial.

The jury reviewed the videotape of the narcotics transaction before returning a guilty verdict. McMillan faces up to 30 years on the distribution charge.
