The Lexington Herald Leader reports Bill Crider plead guilty this week to distributing oxycodone in Wolfe County in 2009. It was part of a plea deal that got a gun charge dropped.
The case didn't mention anything about the disappearance of Crider's ex-wife, Joyce, who was last seen in October of 2002 and declared dead in 2009.
Crider could spend up to 20 years in prison. Sentencing is set for January 31st.
