PITTSBURGH - A resident of Pittsburgh, PA, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of robbery and firearm violations, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.

The four-count Superseding Indictment named Deon Reese, age 47, as the sole defendant.

According to the Superseding Indictment, on March 23, 2017, Reese robbed an individual and conspired to rob him, and used a firearm to do so.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of life years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. 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. Reese is detained pending trial.

Assistant United States Attorney Doug Maloney is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, and the Pennsylvania State Police conducted the investigation leading to the Superseding Indictment in this case.

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