WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Jewan Kyle, 26, of Cleveland, Ohio, was sentenced today to 44 months in prison for distributing heroin near a local playground, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced.

Kyle, who has multiple prior felony drug convictions, pled guilty in October 2014 to one count of “Distribution of Heroin Within 1000’ of a Protected Location.”

United States Attorney Ihlenfeld prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick P. Stamp presided.
