Maximum penalty upon conviction is one year of imprisonment, a $100,000 fine, a year of supervised release and an additional year of supervised release upon revocation. Restitution and a $25 special assessment may also be ordered.

The investigation was conducted by the BIA. LaRoche was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service pending his June 25 sentencing.
