Marsh, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida and Teresa M. Gulotta-Powers, Special Agent in Charge, United States Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General, Miami Field Office.

The indictment alleges that the offense took place between 2010 and 2012, at the Federal Correctional Institution in Tallahassee.  Santiago was arraigned in federal court today and a trial date was scheduled for May 6, 2014.

The case was investigated by the United States Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General.  It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen Rhew-Miller

An indictment is merely an allegation by a grand jury that a defendant has committed a violation of federal criminal law and is not evidence of guilt.  All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
