United States District Judge Mark R. Hornak imposed the sentence on Dwayne Corrigan, 33, of Ambridge, Pennsylvania.

According to information presented to the court, from in and around January 2016 and continuing thereafter to in and around July 2016, Corrigan conspired with others to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin, a Schedule I controlled substance. Corrigan also distributed fentanyl on July 27, 2016, and, pursuant to his plea agreement with the United States, Corrigan accepted responsibility for the fact that the fentanyl he distributed on July 27, 2016, resulted in the serious bodily injury of two individuals.
