According to the indictment, from in and around January 2011 through June 2012, the 17 defendants—and others—conspired to distribute and possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine.

Additionally, Knox, Levy, Terrell Percy Williams, Wise, Malone and Wright are charged in separate instances of distributing less than 500 grams of cocaine. Worthey is charged with distributing more than 500 grams of cocaine. And, Wise also is charged with distributing less than 28 grams of cocaine base in and around Washington, PA. 

The law provides for a maximum sentence of not less than 10 years and up to life in prison, a fine of $10,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Barbara K. Swartz is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government. The FBI and the Pennsylvania State Police conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
