Baltimore man admits to his role in a heroin distribution operation

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – A Baltimore, Maryland man has admitted today to distributing heroin, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced. 

Steven Robinson, also known as “H,” age 32, pled guilty to one count of “Conspiracy to Distribute Heroin.” Robinson admitted to conspiring with others to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin with an illegal street value of more than $300,000 in Berkeley and Jefferson Counties and elsewhere from August 2015 to December 2016.

Robinson faces up to life incarceration and a fine of up to $10,000,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant. 

Assistant United States Attorney Anna Z. Krasinski and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth D. Grant, also with the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office, are prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Eastern Panhandle Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 
U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Trumble presided.
