Dan McIntosh Convicted
Yesterday, a federal jury convicted Daniel McIntosh of conspiring to distribute and possessing with intent to distribute 100 kilograms or more but less than 1000 kilograms of marijuana. Thus, McIntosh is not facing a mandatory life sentence – which would have been the penalty had the jury found the amount of weed involved to be 1000 kilograms or more. Instead, thanks to McIntosh’s prior weed-dealing convictions, he’s facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, with the possibility of life. The jury acquitted McIntosh of all charges related to laundering money at Sonar, the shuttered nightclub he used to co-own, but did convict him of helping the 16-member conspiracy launder money. He scheduled to be sentenced on April 1, and will be jailed until then, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maryland.
