ABINGDON, Va. (AP) -- An attorney in Wise faces more than a year in prison after pleading guilty to federal drug charges.

Under a plea agreement, 42-year-old Stuart Collins would be sentenced to 20 months. Sentencing is set for Sept. 10 in U.S. District Court in Abingdon.

U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Heaphy says Collins pleaded guilty Monday to four felony counts of obtaining controlled substances by fraud.
