South Bend, IN—The United States Attorney's Office announced that a Grand Jury sitting in South Bend, Indiana, returned the following Indictment on September 12, 2012:


Ψ  Maxie Rallings, Jr., age 41, of Gary, Indiana, was charged in a four count Indictment with two counts of distribution of a Schedule II controlled substance, one count of distribution of a Schedule I controlled substance, and one count of possession with intent to distribute a Schedule I 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. Schaffer.


If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
