Two Genesee County people arrested and charged in synthetic drug raid
|Michelle Condidorio||Joshua Denise|
Two Genesee County residents and one person from Rochester were arrested on suspicion of possessing -- with intent to distribute, and distribution of -- a controlled substance analog, synthetic marijuana.
U.S. Attorney General William J. Hochul Jr. announced this afternoon that Joshua Denise, 37, of Batavia, and Michelle Condidorio, 30, of Le Roy, were arrested and charged along with 22-year-old Austin Szczur, of Rochester.
The charges carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a one million dollar fine, or both. If the substances as described in the criminal complaint caused serious bodily injury, the punishment will be a mandatory 20-year incarceration and a maximum of life in prison, if convicted.
A full report from Howard with information from the DEA and State Police will be published tomorrow.
I can't believe these folks have been released. I feel they are flight risks. Kudos to all for the efforts made in stopping these illegal sales.
Well I have to agree with you there Lisa, why would they go back to work with the "in progress" investigation going on.. From what I read of the press releases I wouldnt be too comfortable with a million dollar fine and mandatory 20 to life in prison. Hell even 1/4 of that would break most people.
