SANDRA RENEE KEITH, age 34, a resident of Hammond, Louisiana, was charged in a two-count indictment filed today for harboring and concealing a federal fugitive, and making a material false statement to a federal agent, announced U. S. Attorney Dana J. Boente.
According to court records, on May 6, 2013, KEITH did knowingly and willfully lie to agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration, an agency of the United States, in an attempt to conceal Michael D. Brumfield, a federal fugitive, from arrest.
If convicted, KEITH faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five (5) years, a $250,000 fine, three (3) years of supervised release following any term of imprisonment, and a $100 special assessment as to each count.
The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Julia K. Evans.
U. S. Attorney Boente reiterated that the Indictment is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
