He faces two counts of attempted first-degree promoting a dangerous drug and one count each second-degree attempted promoting of a dangerous drug, second-degree criminal property damage, ownership or possession prohibited, and prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia.

If convicted as charged, Nacis faces sentencing to a mandatory minimum prison term without the possibility of parole. According to Waltjen, Nacis is a repeat offender with three prior felony convictions.
