Week In Review – Fort Wayne

                Fort Wayne, Indiana — The United States Attorney’s Office announced the following activity in Federal Court:


  • Deantre L. Rogers, 36, of Fort Wayne, Indiana pled guilty to the felony offense of knowingly distributing a controlled substance (28 grams or more of crack cocaine). The magistrate judge is recommending that the district court accept the tendered guilty plea.  Parties have 14 days in which to object to the magistrate judge’s recommendation. This charge was filed as a result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI Safe Streets Task Force and the Fort Wayne Police Department.  Sentencing will be set by separate order by the district court.  This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony W. Geller.

If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
