HARRISONBURG -- A federal jury found Jeremy King guilty in a bath salts case.

King is for a former Pamela's Secrets employee charged with drug conspiracy for having and selling bath salts.

The jury took only about a half an hour to decide that King was guilty. They found enough evidence to prove that King knew he was selling a dangerous drug.

King testified in federal court Thursday, saying he didn't know what bath salts were when he was selling them at Pamela's Secrets last year. He said he was just working at the adult store to make some money.

The prosecution said there was plenty of evidence showing King knew exactly what he was selling. For example, they said the price of the drug was so high, it had to be suspicious to King when he sold it to customers.

Several witnesses also testified during the trial, saying they saw King ordering the synthetic drug and that he knew its dangerous effects.

Plus, the prosecutor said King still continued to sell bath salts after police raided the store the first time.

King's coworkers Matthew Comer and store owner Augustus Julias already pleaded guilty to the same charge.

King now heads to jail without bond.
