West Mifflin Man Charged with Distributing Multiple Illegal Substances

PITTSBURGH – An Allegheny County man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh and charged with violations of federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The one-count indictment, returned on February 6 and unsealed today, named Stanley Church, 47, of West Mifflin, Pa., as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on or about March 17, 2017, Stanley Church possessed with the intent to distribute quantities of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, crack cocaine, MDMA, and Psilocyn mushrooms.

The law provides for a total maximum sentence of not more than 20 years in prison, and a fine of up to $1,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Timothy M. Lanni is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Allegheny County Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

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