PITTSBURGH – A Georgia resident has been sentenced in federal court to 78 months of imprisonment on his conviction of Possession with the Intent to Distribute Fentanyl, Acting United States Attorney Troy Rivetti announced today.

United States District Judge David Stewart Cercone imposed the sentence on Christopher Jordan, age 42, of Atlanta, Georgia.

According to information presented to the court, an investigation by the Allegheny County Police revealed that Jordan was selling fentanyl from an address on Soles Street in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. Allegheny County Police detectives executed a search warrant at that residence on March 11, 2021, and the detectives found distribution quantities of fentanyl attributable to Jordan, along with other evidence of drug trafficking.

Assistant United States Attorney Brendan T. Conway prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Acting United States Attorney Rivetti commended the Allegheny County Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Jordan.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
