Brandon Josiha Granger entered his plea Monday before United States District Judge John R. Tunheim. He was indicted on Dec. 12, 2011.

In Granger’s plea agreement, he admitted that from October 2009 through Oct. 12, 2011 he conspired with others to distribute and possess with intent to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine.

Granger could face up to life in prison.

His sentence will be determined by Judge Tunheim at a future hearing.

  • end Prohibition

    Let’s see, if you murder, 7 years? If you distribute a controlled substance and are non-violent, life?

    Prohibition makes so much sense. We seriously need sensible drug laws.

    • Death

      Could not agree more!

  • Rog-O

    Mmmmm Kay – Drugs R’ bad.

  • Dale

    Thanks for another black eye.

  • Don't worry

    He’s a “Hero” so he’ll get off with a few years, anyone else it would be life.
