PITTSBURGH, PA – Katlyn McGirr was sentenced to 60 months in prison for conspiring to distribute at least 28 grams of crack cocaine as well as additional quantities of fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine, and powder cocaine, from June 2020 to June 2021, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

McGirr, age 31 of Sharon, Pennsylvania, was sentenced by United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon.  Judge Bissoon ordered McGirr to serve four years of supervised release following her prison sentence. 

According to information presented to the court, McGirr admitted responsibility for the distribution of 150 grams of powder cocaine, 30 grams of crack cocaine, 20 grams of fentanyl, 20 grams of heroin, and 10 grams of methamphetamine.

Assistant United States Attorneys Benjamin C. Dobkin and Craig W. Haller prosecuted this case on behalf of the United States.

United States Attorney Olshan commended 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 for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of McGirr.

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.
