Dimetrius Morris of Farrell has been sentenced to 7 years in federal prison for committing drug trafficking and firearms crimes, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

Morris, 39, was sentenced by United States District Judge Robert J. Colville, who also ordered Morris to serve three years of supervised release following his prison sentence. 

In January, Morris pleaded guilty to possessing with intent to distribute cocaine, fentanyl, and methamphetamine, and to possessing a firearm in furtherance of that drug trafficking crime. The incident occurred in February of 2020.

Prior to that date, Morris had been convicted in federal and state courts of several drug trafficking and weapons crimes throughout the previous 15 years, and spent nearly 10 of those years in prison serving the various sentences imposed for those crimes and corresponding supervised release/parole violations.

The Sharon Police Department, FBI, Farrell Police Department and the ATF led the investigation.
