Indictment Unsealed Against Michael Shirley

Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced an indictment was unsealed against Michael Shirley, 55, of Doniphan, Nebraska. The Indictment charges Shirley with two counts of distribution of methamphetamine in September 2016.


Shirley faces a maximum possible penalty, if convicted, of 40 years imprisonment, a $5,000,000 fine, a 4-year term of supervised release and a $100 special assessment for each count.


Indictments are charging documents that contain one or more individual counts that are merely accusations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.


This case was investigated by the Central Nebraska Drug and Safe Streets Task Force.
