PITTSBURGH - A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of violating federal narcotic and firearms laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The three-count Indictment, returned on August 18 and unsealed today, named Daimere Wilmer, age 27, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment, on March 13, 2020, Wilmer possessed a quantity of marijuana and possessed firearms and ammunition in furtherance of his drug trafficking. Wilmer is also a convicted felon, and as such cannot legally possess a firearm.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not less than 20 years in prison and up to life imprisonment, a fine of not more than $750,000, a term of supervised release of at least 3 years, or a combination thereof. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Nicole Vasquez Schmitt is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
