May 20, 2011

PITTSBURGH, Pa. ‑ A resident of Clairton, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to 14 months in prison for violating his federal supervised release, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

Chief United States District Judge Gary L. Lancaster imposed the sentence on Raymond Zwibel, 39.

According to information presented to the court, Zwibel received 70 months of imprisonment on March 11, 2005, for his conviction of being a convicted felon with a firearm. He was eventually released on Nov. 18, 2010, and was arrested on March 10, 2011, for having a blood alcohol level of nearly twice the limit of .08% while driving a child to school in the morning on a motorcycle.

Assistant United States Attorney Ross E. Lenhardt prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the United States Probation Office, the United States Marshal Service, the Allegheny County Police Department and the Clairton Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Zwibel.
