Glenham Man Pleads Guilty To Distribution Of A Controlled Substance

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Randall Murray, age 50, of Glenham, South Dakota appeared before U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann on May 20, 2013 and pled guilty to Count II of the Indictment that charged him with Distribution of a Controlled Substance.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 5 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 2 years of supervised release, an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation; and a mandatory $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge stems from an incident wherein Murray, on or about June 24, 2011, did knowingly and intentionally distribute 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 is prosecuting the case.

Murray was released on bond pending sentencing which has been set for September 23, 2013.
