Fort Pierre Man Sentenced For Possession Of A Controlled Substance

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Fort Pierre, South Dakota man convicted of Possession of a Controlled Substance was sentenced on May 13, 2013 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Brent Flood, age 23, was sentenced to 6 months of imprisonment, a $1,000 fine, and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Flood was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 19, 2012. He pled guilty to a Superseding Information on March 12, 2013. The charge stems from an incident on April 5, 2012 wherein Flood knowingly and intentionally possessed marijuana, a Schedule I controlled substance.

The investigation was conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn N. Rich prosecuted the case.

Flood was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service.
