Yankton Woman Sentenced for Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Misrepresentation, Fraud, Forgery, Deception, and Subterfuge
United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Nebraska woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance.
Marcitta Connors, age 24, was indicted on September 11, 2018. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 8, 2019, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in prison and/or a $10,000,000 fine, a lifetime of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund for each Count. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that beginning no later than January 1, 2015, continuing to September 11, 2018, Connors knowingly and intentionally conspired with others to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
The charge is merely an accusation and Connors is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and the Northern Plains Safe Trials Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case.
Connors was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
