Miranda Marshall, age 32, was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 8, 2011, for False Statements. She appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 7, 2011, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is five years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both; three years of supervised release; and a $100 Special Assessment. Restitution may also be ordered. The charge is merely an accusation, and she is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
