Toan Dac Le, age 30, of Mayfield Heights, Ohio, Charged with possession with the intent to distribute and distribution MDMA
A federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Toan Dac Le, age 30, of Mayfield Heights, Ohio, with possession with the intent to distribute and distribution of 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine Hydrochloride (MDMA) on June 3, 2009, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendants’ prior criminal records, if any, the defendants’ role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, Medina County Drug Task Force, and the Summit County Drug Unit. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Samuel A. Yannucci.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
