Lang, 29, was indicted on one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute at Least Fifty Grams of Methamphetamine,” and one count of “Unlawful Possession of Firearm.” Lang, a person prohibited from having firearms because of a prior conviction, is accused of having at least 50 grams of methamphetamine and 13 firearms in June 2019 in Randolph County.

Lang faces not less than 10 years and up to life incarceration and a fine of up to $10,000,000 for the meth charge. He faces up to 10 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000 for the firearms charge. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen D. Warner is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Mountain Region Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, and the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office investigated.

An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
