Sharon Man Sentenced to Prison for Distributing Crack

PITTSBURGH – Jeronte Robinson was sentenced to 24 months in prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.
Robinson, age 27 of Sharon, Pennsylvania, was sentenced by United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon. Judge Bissoon ordered Robinson to serve three years of supervised release after his prison sentence.

Robinson’s sentence is a result of conduct between June 2020 and June 2021. During that time period, Robinson and co-conspirators frequently distributed crack cocaine from Robinson’s residence on Euclid Avenue in Sharon, Pennsylvania. Robinson’s sentencing guideline range was increased because he possessed a gun when he was conspiring to distribute crack cocaine.

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

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Lawrence County Drug Task Force, the Mercer County Drug Task Force, the New Castle Police Department, the Sharon Police Department, the Hermitage Police Department, and the Farrell Police Department led the investigation in this case.

This prosecution is a result of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles high-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations that threaten communities throughout the United States. OCDETF uses a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.
