Ronnie W. Clark, Earl W. Williams and Michael W. Eversole are each charged with distributing oxycodone. The men were indicted Sept. 28, but the case remained sealed until yesterday, after the arrests of the 74-year-old Clark and 42-year-old Williams, both of Perry County. They are accused of distributing the pills in Perry and Leslie counties over a three-year period, ending this past July.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and $1 million in fines, but those penalties could be enhanced to 30 years and $2 million if any of the men has a previous felony drug conviction.

Clark and Williams were due to appear in court this afternoon.
