Fort Hall Man Indicted for Meth Distribution
POCATELLO – Charles Eugene Allhands, 52, of Fort Hall, Idaho, was indicted by a federal grand jury this week on charges of distribution of methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.
The indictment alleges that on March 5, May 20, and June 9, 2015, Allhands distributed methamphetamine in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(a)(1) and (b(1)(C). Allhands appeared today in United States District Court in Pocatello and entered not guilty pleas to the charges. A jury trial is scheduled before Chief District Judge B. Lynn Winmill on December 7, 2015.
The charge of distribution of methamphetamine is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, a maximum fine of $1,000,000, and at least three years of supervised release.
The case was investigated by the Fort Hall Police Department, the Bingham County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
An indictment is a means of charging a person with criminal activity. It is not evidence. The person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
