Previously Convicted Felon Sentenced to 11.5 Years in Prison for Drug Trafficking and Possession of Firearm While on Federal Supervised Release

PITTSBURGH, Pa.- A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 138 months in federal prison for fentanyl and heroin trafficking and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon while on federal supervised release for a prior conviction, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

United States Senior District Judge Nora Barry Fischer imposed the sentence on Todd Hill, 38, also ordering Hill to serve eight years of supervised release following his prison sentence.

Hill previously pleaded guilty in this case to (1) conspiring to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl and 100 grams or more of heroin, (2) possessing with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of a mixture containing fentanyl and heroin, and (3) possessing a firearm after a felony conviction. Federal law prohibits possession of a firearm or ammunition by a convicted felon.

Prior to sentencing, the Court was informed that, in 2020 and 2021, Hill trafficked hundreds of grams of fentanyl and heroin and unlawfully possessed a firearm while on federal supervised release following his incarceration for a 2016 federal conviction for conspiring to distribute heroin. He also engaged in the heroin trafficking that led to his 2016 conviction while on a previous term of federal supervised release, following a 2007 federal conviction and prison sentence for possessing cocaine base with intent to distribute.

Assistant United States Attorney Craig W. Haller prosecuted this case on behalf of the United States.

United States Attorney Olshan commended the Pennsylvania State Police; Pittsburgh Police Department; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; United States Marshals Service; and Federal Bureau of Investigation for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Hill.
