South Bend, IN—The United States Attorney's Office announced that a Grand Jury sitting in South Bend, Indiana, returned the following Indictment on February 11, 2010:

John Brown, 43, of South Bend, Indiana, was charged in a one count Indictment with one count of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance. These charges were filed as the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration. This case has been assigned to and will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Frank E.

The specific sentence to be imposed upon conviction will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
