Indiana County Drug Dealer Sentenced to State Prison for Up to 5 Years

INDIANA CO., Pa. (EYT) – An Indiana County woman has been sentenced up to five years in state prison for possession of heroin.

District Attorney Bob Manzi announced that defendant Lori Wisor, of Blairsville, was sentenced to serve two to five years incarceration in state prison.

On November 24, 2021, Wisor entered an open guilty plea to possession of less than a gram of heroin with the intent to deliver or sell, an ungraded felony. Senior Judge William J. Martin on Thursday, December 23, sentenced Wisor to state prison for dealing drugs in Indiana County.

According to court documents, the charge stemmed from a January 26, 2021 incident in Burrell Township, Indiana County, after members of the Pennsylvania State Police were investigating allegations of a domestic assault.

During that investigation, police found the defendant, Lori Wisor, in possession of heroin that was packaged in a manner consistent with selling drugs. Wisor admitted to possession of the drugs and explained how she used baking soda to “cut” the drugs and increase the amount she is able to sell, according to court documents.

“Once again, members of the Pennsylvania State Police were able to use their training and experience to detect evidence of drug dealing in our county. Through their investigation, they were able to gather the necessary evidence to lead to a conviction against Ms. Wisor,” Manzi said.

“I prefer people stop selling drugs in our county. If they don’t, then housing at a state prison will serve its purpose of stopping crime,” Manzi commented.

If you have any information that will help our law enforcement community investigate, arrest, and prosecute drug dealers, please call the District Attorney’s Drug Task Force at 724-471-7777 or the Pennsylvania State Police at 1-877-PA-NODRUGS.

Our families deserve to live in a drug-free community, added DA Manzi.
