PITTSBURGH, PA – A resident of Clairton, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 12 months and one day’s imprisonment, followed by three years’ supervised release, on his conviction of conspiracy to distribute narcotics, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.
United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab imposed the sentence on Jojuan Bray, 21.
According to information presented to the court at the time he entered a guilty plea, Bray purchased cocaine from his codefendant, Skyler Carter, for further distribution in the Clairton area, and is responsible for the distribution of approximately 230 grams of cocaine between March and June of 2017. Bray is the ninth of 21 defendants charged in the conspiracy to be sentenced.
Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn J. Bloch is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation led the multi-agency investigation of this case, which also included the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, the Allegheny County Police Department, and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate, and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
