Two illegal aliens indicted on a drug charges

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Two men in the United States illegally were indicted today by a federal grand jury on drug charges, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Hsun Jung Chang, age 29, and Shougi Li, age 24, are each charged with one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with the Intent to Distribute and Distribute Marijuana,” and one count of “Aiding and Abetting Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana.” The men are accused of possessing marijuana in Ohio County in May 2018.

Each defendant faces up to five years incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000 for each count. 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 L. Vogrin is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The West Virginia State Police and the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office investigated.

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