Ten people were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of dealing crack within 1,000 feet of schools in the Tenderloin, prosecutors said.

Nine of the 10 defendants have been arrested in connection with the charges, according to U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag. The 10th defendant is currently in state custody on unrelated charges.

The maximum penalty for dealing drugs in a drug-free school zone is up to 40 years in prison, with fines of up to $2 million, Haag said.

“There are thousands of children who live and go to school in the Tenderloin,” and they shouldn’t have to “navigate through crack deals on the way,” Haag said.
