The grand jury indicted Orback on Thursday. If convicted, he faces up to five years in federal prison.

Orback is being detained in Colorado on unrelated state charges there. An initial appearance in Maryland has not yet been scheduled, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

It is unclear if Orback has an attorney.
