Man faces 20 years in prison, possible fine of $1 million



The sentencing hearing for a Brownstown man who recently agreed to plead guilty to a federal charge of possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver has been delayed.

Philip Todd Nash had initially been scheduled to appear in federal court in Indianapolis today, but Judge Tanya Walton Pratt agreed to move the hearing to 9 a.m. Aug. 15 at the request of the U.S. District Attorney’s Office.

The 44-year-old faces a sentence of 20 years in prison and a possible fine of $1 million on the felony charge. Because of Nash’s willingness to accept responsibility for his actions, the Justice Department is offering a sentencing guideline of 30 to 37 months prison time, according to court documents.
