Camp Hill Marijuana Trafficker Pleads Guilty
The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District Pennsylvania announced that Andrew Angle, age 26, from Camp Hill, entered a guilty plea today before U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner to conspiracy to distribute marijuana between December 2011 and March 2012.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Angle also forfeited over $50,000 in cash and drug proceeds seized from a bank account, safe deposit box, and locations affiliated with Angle. Angle has contested forfeiture of $28,000 in cash taken from one of his bank accounts. That forfeiture will be decided by the court at a later proceeding.
The case was investigated by the DEA, Dauphin County Drug Task Force and the Cumberland County Drug Task Force. Prosecution is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Michael A. Consiglio.
A sentence following a finding of guilty is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
In this case, the maximum penalty under the federal statute is five years’ imprisonment and a term of supervised release following imprisonment and a fine. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant’s educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.
