HARRISBURG—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Robert Hendrix, Jr., age 39, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on June 13, 2019, by United States District Court Judge Sylvia H.

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 Police Bureau. Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlo D. Marchioli prosecuted the case.
