PITTSBURGH, PA – A resident of Clairton, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of violating the federal narcotics and firearms laws, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.
The two-count Indictment named Meiko Shawn DeVaughn, age 27, as the sole defendant.
According to the Indictment, on June 10, 2021, DeVaughn unlawfully possessed a quantity of heroin, intending to redistribute it, and a firearm and ammunition, which he unlawfully possessed after sustaining a prior conviction for a felony offense. Federal law prohibits a convicted felon from possessing a firearm or ammunition.
The law provides for a maximum total sentence of imprisonment of not more than twenty years, a fine of not more than $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 of the defendant.
Assistant United States Attorney Jerome A. Moschetta is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Clairton 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.
