Toledo man indicted for having methamphetamine

A Toledo man was indicted in federal court for distribution of methamphetamine, said U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman.

Darren F. Fenner, 63, was indicted on one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and one count of attempted possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Fenner and others conspired to possess 15 grams of methamphetamine between November and December 2017, according to the indictment.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Burke.

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

An indictment is a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
