North Ridgeville Woman Charged With Distributing Methamphetamine
A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging a North Ridgeville woman and an Arizona man with using the U.S. mail to distribute methamphetamine, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Indicted are Robert Havers, 49, and Patricia Ann Quinn, 43.
On July 24, 2014, Havers mailed approximately one pound of methamphetamine in the U.S. Mail from Phoenix, Arizona, to Quinn in North Ridgeville, Ohio. On July 25, 2014, U.S. Postal Inspectors delivered the package, which Quinn accepted and opened, according to the indictment.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Margaret A. Sweeney following an investigation by the United States Postal Inspection Service.
If convicted, the defendants’ sentences will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendants’ prior criminal records, if any, the defendants’ roles in the offenses 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.
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.
