An Indiana County man pleaded guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court to a single count of violating federal narcotics laws.
U.S. Attorney Scott Brady announced the guilty plea of 40-year-old Robert Neal Fiasco of Arcadia Road, Cherry Tree. Fiasco was indicted in April of last year by a federal grand jury, which found that he had distributed less than 100 grams of heroin. The investigation was conducted by the Laurel Highlands Resident Agency of the FBI and the Cambria County Drug Task Force,
U.S. District Judge Kim Gibson scheduled sentencing for January 3rd. The maximum sentence is twenty years in prison and a fine of one million dollars, or both. Under federal sentencing guidelines, the actual sentence would be based on a number of factors including prior criminal history. Fiasco pleaded guilty to drug and weapons charges in 2011 in Clearfield County and was sentenced to three years in state prison.
