This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Capital City Safe Streets Task Force; Harrisburg City Police Department; Swatara Township Police Department; and the York City Police Department. Prosecution has been assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom.
An indictment or information is not evidence of guilt but simply a description of the charge made by the grand jury and/or United States Attorney against a defendant. A charged defendant is presumed innocent until a jury returns a unanimous finding that the United States has proven the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt or until the defendant has pled guilty to the charges.
