JOHNSTOWN, Pa. – A former resident of Cairnbrook, PA pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of violating federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.

Vicky Wagoner, age 40, pleaded guilty to Count One of the Indictment before United States District Judge Stephanie L. Haines.

In connection with the guilty plea, from on or about November 9, 2021, Wagner did possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine.

Judge Haines scheduled sentencing for April 6, 2023, at 1:30 p.m. The law provides for a minimum sentence of 5 years in prison, a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison, a fine of $5,000,000, 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 United States Attorney Arnold P. Bernard Jr. is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Laurel Highlands Resident Agency and Pennsylvania State Police conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Wagoner.
