Pittsburgh Man on Supervised Release Sentenced to Nearly 3 Years in Prison for Drug Sales

PITTSBURGH - A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 18 months imprisonment and six years supervised release on his conviction of violating the federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today. Bryant was also sentenced today in federal court to an additional 15 months’ imprisonment for violating the conditions of his supervised release by, among other ways, selling illegal narcotics.

Senior United States District Judge Donetta W. Ambrose imposed the sentences on Tory Bryant, age 32.

According to information presented to the court, on March 13, 2018, Bryant possessed with the intent to distribute a quantity of heroin, a Schedule I controlled substance, a quantity of fentanyl, a Schedule II controlled substance, and a quantity of crack cocaine, a Schedule II controlled substance. An undercover officer arranged to make a purchase of narcotics from Bryant, and when the officers attempted to arrest Bryant at the scene of the arranged transaction, Bryant fled. The officers recovered the narcotics that Bryant intended to sell to the undercover officers on the path of Bryant’s flight.

Assistant United States Attorney Brendan T. Conway prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

United States Attorney Brady commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Wilkinsburg Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Bryant.
