It charges Fussell with one count of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute the drug on Jan. 30, and charges Holland with one count of distributing methamphetamine on Feb. 15 and with possessing with intent to distribute five grams or more of the drug on that date.
The conspiracy charge carries a penalty of 10 years to life in prison and a fine of up to $10 million.
