At an arraignment hearing on December 8, 2022, before United States Magistrate Judge Teresa McKee, he pleaded not guilty to the charges. A trial has been set for February 13, 2023.
If convicted, Thunder faces up to 15 years’ imprisonment with three years of supervised release, up to a $250,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
