Sioux Falls Man Indicted For Conspiracy To Distribute A Controlled Substance

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiring with others to distribute methamphetamine in South Dakota and elsewhere from August 2009 to February 2013.

Clinton Provincial, age 33, was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 20, 2013 for Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on March 26, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The penalty upon conviction is a minimum of 5 up to 40 years’ imprisonment and/or a $5,000,000 fine.

The charge is merely an accusation and Provincial is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Rapid City Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ted L. McBride is prosecuting the case.

Provincial was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has been set for May 28, 2013.
