A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and John K. Lenkart, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Richmond Field Office, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney S. David Schiller is prosecuting the case.

 

This case was investigated by the FBI Richmond Division in partnership with the Henrico County Police Division, the Chesterfield County Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as part of the FBI Richmond Central Virginia Violent Crimes Task Force.
