Ruliera was indicted on one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute Adderall, and four counts of distributing and possessing with intent to distribute Adderall.

Each charge provides a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, at least three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $1 million.
