William Joseph Watson faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced Dec. 8, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Fred Sheppard.
The defendant — who had been indicted on 40 other counts of oxycodone distribution — pleaded guilty as jury selection was to begin in his trial.

Watson, arrested in June 2013, was secretly recorded selling prescriptions to an undercover agent and an informant, authorities said.
