Harrisburg Man Sentenced To 11 Years In Prison For Drug Distribution

HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Malachi Maurice Glass, age 33, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced yesterday  to 11 years in prison by United States District Court Judge John E. Jones, III in Harrisburg, for  distribution of cocaine base (crack) and cocaine hydrochloride. 

According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, Glass previously pleaded guilty to distribution of cocaine.  Glass, in his plea, acknowledged distributing more than 55 grams of crack cocaine in Mifflin County (with a value over $3,000) between April and August 2013.

Glass was indicted by a federal grand jury in Harrisburg in October 2013, as a result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Mifflin County Drug Task Force, and the Lewistown Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom prosecuted the case.

Judge Jones also ordered Glass to be placed on three years of supervised release following his prison sentence.
