Man sentenced for distributing heroin

Posted: Updated:

 

A Cincinnati man who previously admitted to participating in a conspiracy to distribute heroin was sentenced to 162 months in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge David Bunning sentenced Lee Moore, 43, on Tuesday and also ordered him to serve 8 years of supervised release after he completes his prison
term.

Moore admitted that over the course of approximately 15 months he distributed over 100 grams of heroin throughout northern Kentucky and southern Ohio. He also acknowledged transporting large amounts of a substance used to cut heroin for distribution. Moore was previously convicted of felony drug trafficking offenses in Ohio and Georgia.

Moore pleaded guilty on January 25, 2012. A co-defendant, Raymond Hill, Jr., was sentenced to 276 months in prison on May 16, 2013.

Under federal law, the defendants must serve at least 85 percent of their prison sentence.
