PITTSBURGH, Pa. – An Allegheny County resident has been sentenced in federal court to 25 months of incarceration and three years of supervised release on her conviction of conspiring to possess and distribute opiate painkillers, oxycodone and oxymorphone, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.
United States District Judge Mark R. Hornak imposed the sentence on Chani Watkins, 26, of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania.
According to information presented to the court, Watkins participated in a criminal network of drug dealers that obtained opiate pain killers and then illegally distributed them to users in the Pittsburgh area. Watkins distributed opiate pills to, and collected money from, Kavon Dawkins, one of the primary dealer in the conspiracy. Dawkins is presently awaiting sentencing.
Assistant United States Attorney Brendan T. Conway prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
United States Attorney Brady commended the Federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, and the Allegheny County Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Watkins.
