PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh resident has been sentenced in federal court to 150 months’ imprisonment on his convictions of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribute more than one kilogram of heroin and conspiracy to commit money laundering, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

United States District Judge Nora Barry Fischer imposed the sentence on Marieo Everett, age 33, of Pittsburgh, PA.

According to information presented to the court, from April through August 2016, Marieo Everett was intercepted over a DEA wiretap conspiring with others to possess with intent to distribute and distribute heroin. He also conspired with others to launder the proceeds of the heroin trafficking conspiracy.

Assistant United States Attorney Tonya Sulia Goodman prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Acting United States Attorney Song commended the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, and the Pennsylvania State Police for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Everett. 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.
