PITTSBURGH—A Pittsburgh man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of violating various federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The two-count indictment, returned on March 11, named Kenyatta Robinson, 33, of Lemington Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, 15206.

According to the indictment, on November 1, 2013, Robinson possessed with intent to distribute 280 grams or more of crack cocaine and less than 500 grams of powder cocaine.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not less than 10 years to up to life in prison, a fine of $10,000,000 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 Amy L. Johnston is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, and the Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force 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.
