A former McKeesport man accused of selling the heroin that killed a woman in 2016 has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.
Henry T. "Bundles" Little-Proctor, 27, pleaded guilty to five counts of violating federal narcotics and firearms laws and was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Cathy Bisson in Pittsburgh.
U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady said Little-Proctor distributed both heroin and fentanyl, a highly potent painkiller up to 75 more times than morphine, between 2015 and July 2016.
Federal prosecutors said that Little-Proctor sold fentanyl on July 13, 2016, and heroin on July 18, 2016. Agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency obtained a search warrant for Little-Proctor's home and on July 20, 2016, raided the residence. There, they found ammunition and 250 stamp bags of heroin.
Federal law prohibits a person convicted of a prior felony offense from possessing either a firearm or ammunition, Brady said.
Little-Proctor has two prior convictions for heroin dealing and he and another man were suspects in the 2014 shooting death of Susan Sidney, 25, of McKeesport. They were found not guilty of homicide by an Allegheny County jury.
In addition to prison time, Bisson also sentenced Little-Proctor to six years probation as well as restitution to the victim's family.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ross E. Lenhardt of the Violent Crime Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case on behalf of the government, Brady said in a prepared statement.
The DEA conducted the investigation in cooperation with the Duquesne and Homestead police and the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office. The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force program.
