A Wallington, N.J., man was sentenced in federal court last week to nearly 22 years of prison and 10 years of parole for violating federal drug trafficking laws.
U.S. District Judge Terrence McVerry sentenced Wesley “Young” McDaniels, 33, to 21 years and 10 months in prison, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Pittsburgh.
Prosecutors said that between February 2009 and May 2011, McDaniels conspired to distribute between 700 and 1,000 grams of heroin in the Pittsburgh area. With four previous felony drug convictions and prison time on his record, he qualified as a “career offender,” federal prosecutors said.
