Retired Pittsburgh firefighter sentenced for laundering drug money
A retired Pittsburgh firefighter will spend 36 months on probation, perform 200 hours of community service and pay a $7,500 fine for helping his son launder drug money, a federal judge said Friday.
U.S. District Judge Terrence McVerry imposed the sentence on James Greene Sr., 53, of Stanton Heights after the 30-year veteran of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire pleaded guilty in May to laundering the proceeds from his son’s heroin operation between May 2009 and March 2011 to pay the mortgage and utilities on his son’s home and vehicle.
McVerry last Friday sentenced James T. Greene, 29, to 10 years and a month in federal prison.
