PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Acting United States Attorney Robert S. Cessar announced today, June 17, 2010, that Warren D. Robb, Jr., a resident of Trafford, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court in Pittsburgh to 5 years probation, which includes required 6 months confinement in a community correctional facility and participation in a 28‑day inpatient substance abuse treatment program, on his conviction of making false statements to a government agency.
