Former Farrell resident sentenced again to 10 years in jail for dealing crack


PITTSBURGH, Pa. (WKBN) – A former Farrell resident has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the second time by a United States district judge in Pittsburgh.

Officials say 39-year-old Henry Bruce violated federal narcotics laws stemming from an incident in June of 2018.

According to information presented in court, Bruce was found with at least 28 grams of crack cocaine, which officials say he intended to distribute, along with drug packaging paraphernalia, a digital scale and over $19,000 in cash.

His sentence also includes an eight-year term of supervised release once he gets out of jail.

The first time Bruce was sentenced to 10 years in prison was on March 7, 2008, for a federal felony drug conviction. Because of this, Bruce is subject to enhanced penalties.
