A Cleveland man was indicted for selling fentanyl and other drugs.

Hamilton Greathouse, 36, was indicted on two counts of possession with intent to distribute controlled substances. Greathouse had 52 grams of fentanyl and 154 grams of N-Ethylpentylone on Dec. 15, 2017, according to the indictment.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Margaret Sweeney is prosecuting the case following in investigation by the Northern Ohio Law Enforcement Task Force and U.S. Pretrial Services

If convicted, the Court will determine the defendant’s sentence after a 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 violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum. In most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

An indictment is 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.
