Toledo Man Charged with Negligent Operation of a Vessel

A criminal information was filed charging Mark T. Vandeilen, 58, of Toledo, with grossly negligent operation of a vessel, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, and the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the United States Coast Guard.  The case is being handled by Special Assistant United States Attorney Benedict S. Gullo of the United States Coast Guard and Assistant United States Attorney Noah P. Hood.
