Pittsburgh Man Sentenced For Conspiring To Distribute Heroin While On Federal Supervised Release

PITTSBURGH – Terrious Harper, of Pittsburgh, Pa., was sentenced to 84 months in prison for conspiring to distribute over 100 grams of heroin, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

Harper, 30, was sentenced in Pittsburgh by United States District Judge Nora Barry Fischer. Judge Fischer also imposed a four-year term of supervised release to follow the prison sentence.

At the time Harper was conspiring to distribute heroin, he was on federal supervised release following a prior prison sentence for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Judge Fischer ordered that the prison sentence run consecutively to the 24-month prison sentence Harper received for violating the terms of his federal supervised release.

Assistant United States Attorney Craig W. Haller prosecuted this case on behalf of the United States.

The Drug Enforcement Administration in Pittsburgh and New York, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, the Allegheny County Police Department, the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office, the Wilkins Township Police Department, the East Pittsburgh Police Department, the New York Police Department, the Blair County District Attorney's Office, and the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office conducted the investigation leading to the conviction and sentence in this case.
