PITTSBURGH – Todd Hill was indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh for possessing a firearm after a prior felony conviction, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The Indictment charges Hill, age 35, of Pittsburgh, with possessing a Glock pistol on October 19, 2020, after two prior federal felony drug-trafficking convictions – one in the Western District of Pennsylvania and one in the Northern District of West Virginia.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history of the defendant.

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

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

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