McIntosh is charged with a federal civil rights violation for deprivation of rights under color of law in connection with the death of White. It is alleged in the indictment that McIntosh discovered White in his cell, unresponsive and in apparent need of emergency medical care, and walked away without providing medical care or notifying PGDOC personnel of the emergency, thereby acting with deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of harm to White.
McIntosh also is charged with two counts for destruction, alteration or falsification of records in a federal investigation, specifically for falsifying an incident report and a witness statement regarding White’s in-custody death.
McIntosh faces a maximum penalty of life in prison for the civil rights offense. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on each count of falsification of records in a federal investigation. The maximum fine for each count is $250,000.
An indictment is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
