Cleveland man indicted for cocaine conspiracy
A Cleveland man was indicted for conspiring to possess with intent to distribute at least five kilograms of cocaine, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Anthony Milner, 31, was named in the two-count indictment. He is accused of conspiring with others to distribute at least five kilograms of cocaine between March and May 2015, according to the indictment.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Vasile Katsaros following an investigation by the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentences will be determined by the court after a review of the federal sentencing guidelines and factors unique to the case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record (if any), the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.
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.
