Johnstown Man Sentenced to 64 Months in Prison and 3 Years’ Supervised Release for Distributing Heroin

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. – A resident of Johnstown, PA, has been sentenced in federal court to a total of five years and four months (64 months) in prison and three years’ supervised release on his conviction of distributing heroin and violations of supervised release, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.

Senior United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Willie Gene Gulley, Jr., 52, of Johnstown, PA.

According to information presented to the court, on or about March 1, 2018 and March 20, 2018, Gulley distributed less than 100 grams of heroin. As a result of these charges and conviction, Gulley violated terms of supervised release from two prior federal convictions for drug trafficking.

Assistant United States Attorney Maureen Sheehan-Balchon prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Ms. Chung commended the Laurel Highlands Resident Agency of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cambria County Drug Task Force for the investigation that led to the successful prosecution of Gulley.
