10 year sentence for York City man on drug trafficking charges
HARRISBURG, Pa. – A York man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner in Harrisburg, for drug trafficking.
Charlie Rivera, age 26, previously pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, and oxycodone when arrested by the Pennsylvania State Police and York City Police on December 12, 2012. When arrested, he was also found in possession of a firearm. Rivera was wanted at the time of his arrest for failing to report to prison to serve a seven year sentence in another drug trafficking case.
Rivera was indicted by a federal grand jury in Harrisburg in January 2013, as a result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the York City Police Department.
Chief Judge Conner also ordered Rivera to be placed on three years of supervised release following his prison sentence. The court also directed that his sentence be served consecutively to the 7-14 years sentence he is currently serving.
