Two brothers convicted, one sentenced, in heroin ring


One man is headed to prison after a three-year effort to bust a heroin trafficking ring proved successful.

39-year-old David McShan of Steubenville was sentenced in the U.S. District Court Thursday to 74 months in prison and eight years of supervised release. It's for his role in running a Steubenville area heroin trafficking ring.

He and his brother Frederick A. McShan were convicted following a week-long trial in March.

Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Jane Hanlin called the McShan organization “notorious.”

U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the efforts of law enforcement, deputy criminal Chief Michael Hunter and Hanlin, as special assistant U.S. Attorney, for prosecuting this case.

Frederick McShan is scheduled for sentencing on October 12.
