Jordi Raul Rogel-Rodas, a/k/a “Jordy Raul,” age 23, was indicted on April 6, 2021. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on April 20, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and up to $800 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
