For Immediate Release
Former Harrisburg Man Sentenced to More Than Nineteen Years’ Imprisonment for Firearm and Drug-Trafficking Offense
HARRISBURG—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Kevin L. Moody, age 28, formerly of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on August 15, 2019, by United States District Judge Sylvia H. Rambo to 235 months’ imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release for possessing firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking.
According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Moody previously pleaded guilty to possessing five handguns in furtherance of a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine and marijuana.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Harrisburg City Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlo D. Marchioli prosecuted the case.
