A trial date has been scheduled for Feb. 3 in U.S. District Court in Topeka for a Lawrence man charged with possesion of more than 500 marijuana plants and carrying a firearm in connection with a drug trafficking crime.
Assistant U.S. Atty. Brent Anderson said that Vincent A. Perdue, 35, was indicted in October for the crimes which he allegedly committed in Jefferson County.
Perdue currently is in the Jefferson County Jail pending his February trial.
If convicted, Perdue could face 10 to 40 years in federal prison and a $4 million fine for the marijuana charge and a mandatory five years imprisonment for the firearm charge.
