US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Dalton Mollard, age 20, of Fort Pierre, appeared before US District Judge Roberto A. Lange on January 10, 2013, and pled guilty to one count of the indictment that charged him with Distribution of a Controlled Substance. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 5 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both.

The charge stems from an incident on April 4, 2012, when Mollard knowingly and intentionally distributed marijuana, a Schedule I controlled substance, to others.

The investigation was conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force, and Assistant US Attorney Kathryn N. Rich is prosecuting the case. Mollard was remanded to the custody of the US Marshal pending sentencing. A sentencing date has been set for March 25, 2013.
