INQ= Cassell faces a five-year prison term,



plus a quarter million dollar fine,
though sentencing guidelines will call
for a narrow range of punishment-
-something considerably less than five
years.

Of course, the Government will argue
that Cassell should get more time and
his lawyers will ask for less.

Cassell was indicted last Fall, along
with 19 others accused of raiding the
evidence room and going into the drug
trade themselves

No one ever claimed the Sheriff was out
on the street re-selling drugs and
other contraband.

But the government insists he knew
about it and did his best to keep a lid
on it.

THE GRAND JURY ALLEGED THAT CASSELL
COVERED UP THESE ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES BY
BY NOT PURSUING INVESTIGATIONS ANDS BY
AGREEING TO PASS ON ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT
