New York Woman Sentenced For Distributing Cocaine

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that United States District Court Judge Robert D. Mariani sentenced Jalani Kornegay, age 33, of New York, New York, for distributing cocaine.  Judge Mariani imposed a time-served sentenced of 59 days and further ordered that Kornegay serve four-month of home confinement.

On July 16, 2014, Kornegay pleaded guilty to a Criminal Information which charged that she distributed cocaine in Luzerne County on May 18, 2013.  The charges are the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Pennsylvania State Police into the sale of cocaine at motels in Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John Gurganus.

In addition to the imprisonment and home-confinement sentence, Judge Mariani ordered that Kornegay be under the supervision of a United States Probation Officer for three years.
