Austintown man heading to prison for drug offenses

YOUNGSTOWN — An Austintown man in U.S. Northern Ohio District Court was given six years in prison on a pair of drug offenses.

Kenneth P. Mazurkiewicz, 55, who gave a Lanterman Road address, is one of two people charged with supplying the drugs that led to the overdose and death of a person Oct. 15, 2019, in Youngstown.

He appeared this week via video before U.S. Judge Christopher A. Boyko, who ordered Mazurkiewicz to also serve a supervised release of three years and pay $200 in special court costs.

Marzur-kiewicz on May 31, 2022, pleaded guilty to charges of distribution of fentanyl resulting in the death of a person, and dealing with conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

Mazurkiewicz’s bond was continued, and he will report to prison upon order of the U.S. Marshals, court records state.

The federal indictment did not name the person who overdosed, but a co-defendant in the case, Tyron Scott, 25, had pleaded guilty May 5, 2022, before U.S. Judge Patricia A. Gaughan to the same charge. Scott in September was sentenced to 11 years in prison, court records show.

The cocaine case against Mazurkiewicz dealt with an investigation of trafficking in the Mineral Ridge and Warren areas in which the defendant conspired with three other people in the enterprise between September and November 2019.
