For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

An Akron man was indicted on charges of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine, said U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman.

Dontez Yeager, 33, possessed more than 50 grams of methamphetamine as well as a mixture of heroin and fentanyl on Jan. 15, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

The investigation preceding the information was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Agency.  The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason M. Katz.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
