Heroin charges filed on Detroit man
A federal grand jury sitting returned a one-count indictment charging Reginald G. Davis, age 61, of Detroit, Michigan, with possession with the intent to distribute heroin, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
The indictment charges that on or about February 6, 2013, Reginald G. Davis possessed with the intent to distribute more than 100 grams of heroin.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentences will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration - Youngstown Resident Office. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David M. Toepfer.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
