PITTSBURGH – Leevaughn Walls was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison for conspiring to distribute heroin while on bond in another federal heroin and cocaine trafficking case, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

Walls, age 38, formerly of Pittsburgh and Bulger, Pennsylvania, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Nora Barry Fischer. Judge Fischer ordered that the prison sentence be served consecutively to the 63-month prison sentence Walls received in his other federal case. Judge Fischer also ordered that Walls serve three years of supervised release after he is released from prison.

Assistant United States Attorney Craig W. Haller prosecuted this case on behalf of the United States.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police led the multi-agency investigation of this case that also included the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Department of Homeland Security/Homeland Security Investigations, the United States Marshals Service, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Scott Township Police Department, the Munhall Police Department, the Baldwin Police Department, and the Pleasant Hills Police Department. 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.
