The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment, a $250,000 fine or both, and a period of supervised release of 3 years.

A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for April 15, 2013. The defendant was remanded to the custody of the US Marshal pending sentencing.
