Candice Hill, the U.S. Attorney for the western district of Kentucky, said that on the day before the announcement, the grand jury returned the indictment, which alleges that Danny Wade Snyder, 52, of Cadiz, “knowingly and intentionally” manufactured 100 or more marijuana plants, a Schedule I controlled substance, between spring and Thursday, Aug. 13, of this year.
According to a press release by Hill, more than 200 marijuana plants were eradicated by authorities. The release also stated that Assistant U.S. Attorney Michele Thielhorn will prosecute the case, which was investigated by the Kentucky State Police.
If convicted, Snyder faces a maximum penalties of 40 years’ imprisonment, a $2 million fine, and supervised release for a period of four years, with the minimum penalties entailing 5 years’ imprisonment, a $2 million fine, and supervised release for four year, Hill said.
Snyder is scheduled to appear for arraignment before the U.S. Magistrate Judge in Paducah at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 10, said Hill.
