For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Pennsylvania
PITTSBURGH, PA -- A resident of Verona, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 10 months’ imprisonment and three years of supervised release on her conviction of violation of federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.
United States District Judge Horan imposed the sentence on Shania Wilson age 40.
According to information presented to the court, Wilson conspired to possess with intent to distribute and distribute a quantity of fentanyl and a quantity of cocaine base in the form commonly known as crack.
Wilson was involved with the Hustlas Don’t Sleep (HDS) drug trafficking organization. A Title III investigation intercepted communications which revealed that Wilson was re-distributing portions of the controlled substances she bought, providing feedback to HDS members about the quality of the product, sending other customers to HDS to make purchases, and other actions furthering the conspiracy.
Assistant United States Attorney Brendan T. Conway prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
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.
United States Attorney Chung commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Allegheny County Police, and the Monroeville Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Wilson.
