Camp Hill Marijuana Trafficker Charged
The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District Pennsylvania announced that a federal grand jury in Harrisburg returned an indictment today charging a Camp Hill marijuana trafficker.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Andrew Angle, age 25, is charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana and money laundering. The Government is also seeking the forfeiture of approximately $85,000 in drug proceeds seized from a bank account, safe deposit box, and locations affiliated with Angle.
The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Dauphin County Drug Task Force, and the Cumberland County Drug Task Force. Prosecution is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Michael A. Consiglio.
Indictments and Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
A sentence following a finding of guilty is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
In these particular cases, the maximum penalty under the federal statute is five years’ imprisonment for Angle and a term of supervised release following imprisonment and a fine. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant’s educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.
