United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Bend, Oregon, man convicted of Conspiracy and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on November 25, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Glenn Shea, age 21, was sentenced to two years of probation with four months home confinement concurrent on each count, a $1,000 fine on each count, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund on each count.
Shea was indicted for the above charges by a federal grand jury on March 13, 2013.  He pled guilty on November 25, 2013.
Between September 1, 2012 and September 15, 2012, Shea, along with two others, transported several pounds of marijuana for distribution.  Shea was aware that the vehicle he traveled in contained marijuana and shared in the proceeds of the sale.
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
