United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Clearfield, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance.

Cory Scott Fischer, age 45, was indicted on March 15, 2017. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on March 30, 2017, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 20 years in custody and/or a $1,000,000 fine, a lifetime of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge is merely an accusation and Fischer is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Fischer was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
