The possession charge carries a potential maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. The distribution charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in prison and a maximum of 20 years. Loskarn is being held by the U.S. marshal as a flight risk and danger to the community, Justice Department officials said.
