Brevard County Man Indicted For Possessing Cocaine With Intent To Distribute

Orlando, FL – United States Attorney Roger B. Handberg announces the return of an indictment charging Jackie Jamal Hines (46, Melbourne) with possession with the intent to distribute 5 kilograms or more of cocaine. If convicted, Hines faces a minimum mandatory penalty of 10 years, up to life, in federal prison.  The indictment also notifies Hines that the United States intends to forfeit any assets which are alleged to be traceable to proceeds of the offense. 

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Melbourne Police Department. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Megan Testerman.
