West Mifflin Woman Gets Probation, Ordered to Complete Drug Treatment for Conspiring to Distribute Fentanyl

PITTSBURGH, PA – A resident of West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to three years’ probation, the first 180 days of which are to be served under home detention, and 75 hours of community service on her conviction of conspiracy to distribute narcotics, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab imposed the sentence on Jammie Fridley, age 49. According to information presented to the court, Fridley, from March through June 2017, regularly purchased fentanyl and other drugs for personal use and distribution, and was responsible for the distribution of between 32 and 40 grams of fentanyl. In light of her history of drug abuse, the court ordered her to complete drug treatment and mental health programs during the probationary period imposed. Fridley is the fifth of the 21 defendants charged in the conspiracy to be sentenced.

Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn J. Bloch is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation led the multi-agency investigation of this case, which also included the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, the Allegheny County Police Department, and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate, and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
