United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Chicago man charged with Possession With the Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on March 18, 2011, by Chief US District Karen E. Schreier. Michael Henley, age 30, was sentenced to 117 months of imprisonment, four years of supervised release, and a $100 victim assessment.

Henley was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 24, 2007. In October 2007, after a traffic stop by the South Dakota Highway Patrol near Rapid City, Henley's vehicle was found to contain marijuana, which he intended to sell. He pled guilty on December 17, 2010.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Unified Narcotics Enforcement Team. Assistant US Attorney Ted L. McBride prosecuted the case.

Henley was immediately turned over to the custody of the US Marshal.
