Cleveland Heights woman indicted for cocaine conspiracy
A Cleveland Heights woman was indicted on cocaine trafficking charges, said U.S. Attorney Carole S. Rendon.
Rayvonna Taylor, 28, was indicted on one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. This took place between August 2015 and May 2016, 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 case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Vasile Katsaros following an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
An indictment 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.
