PITTSBURGH – An Ohio resident has been sentenced in federal court to four years and four months (52 months) in prison on her convictions of conspiracy to distribute heroin and money laundering, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

Senior United States District Judge David S. Cercone imposed the sentence on Britny Beaver, 25, of East Liverpool, OH.

According to information presented to the court, from January 2015 to February 2016, Beaver conspired with others to possess with intent to distribute and distribute kilogram quantities of heroin. She also conspired to launder $60,000 of the proceeds of the heroin trafficking.

Prior to imposing sentence, Judge Cercone stated that the sentence was sufficient but not greater than necessary to address the factors set forth at 18 U.S.C. § 3553.

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

United States Attorney Brady commended the Drug Enforcement Administration, Hopewell Township Police Department, Beaver County District Attorney’s Office, Aliquippa Police Department, and the Beaver County Sheriff’s Office for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Beaver
