According to the indictment, on March 30, 2011, Christenson robbed the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union located in the Fred Meyer Store at 2300 Abbott Road in Anchorage, Alaska, of $3,313.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas C. Bradley, who presented the case to the grand jury, indicated that the law provides for a maximum total sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both. Under the federal sentencing statutes, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history of the defendant.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
