United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Newton Square, Pennsylvania man has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

David Wallace, age 52, was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 2, 2013 for Conspiracy and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance. Wallace appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 8, 2013 and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is not more than 20 years of imprisonment, a $1,000,000 fine, or both; at least 3 years of supervised release and an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation. Restitution and a $100 special assessment may also be ordered.

The charges are merely accusations, and Wallace is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Kathryn N. Rich is prosecuting the case.

Wallace was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service. A trial date has been set for May 14, 2013.
