North Versailles Man Sentenced to More Prison Time for Violating the Terms of his Supervised Release

PITTSBURGH - A resident of North Versailles, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to ten months’ imprisonment followed by eighteen months of supervised release for violating the terms of his federal supervised release imposed as part of Walls’ 2013 conviction for violations of federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

United States District Judge Mark R. Hornak revoked supervision and imposed the sentence on Antoine Walls, age 25.

Recently, on April 17, 2018, Judge Hornak sentenced Walls to 44 months’ incarceration followed by three years’ supervised release for violations of federal firearms laws. Today, Judge Hornak ordered that Walls may serve six months of his ten-month sentence for violating his federal supervised release concurrent to the sentence imposed last month. Judge Hornak also ordered that the eighteen-month term of supervised release imposed as part of today’s sentence for violating supervised release may be served concurrent to the sentence recently imposed for violations of federal firearms laws.

According to information presented to the court, while on supervised release for a violation of federal narcotics laws, Walls unlawfully possessed a firearm and ammunition in violation of the terms of his supervised release and in violation of federal firearms laws.

Assistant United States Attorney Heidi M. Grogan prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

United States Attorney Brady commended the Drug Enforcement Administration for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Walls.
