The FBI, US Army Criminal Investigation Division out of Fort Stewart, and the Pottsville Police Dept. were involved in the investigation.

Assistant US Attorney James Buchanan will be heading up the prosecution against VanDaley.

If he’s convicted of these crimes, VanDaley faces up to 10 years in prison and supervised release.
