FEDERAL GRAND JURY IN FORT WAYNE RETURNS INDICTMENTS

 

Fort Wayne, IN—The United States Attorney's Office announced that a Grand Jury sitting in Fort Wayne, Indiana, returned the following Indictments on October 27, 2010:

 

Rosie Smith, 24, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, is charged in a two count Indictment with making a false statement in an application for a firearm on or about May 14, 2010 and June 21, 2010. The Indictment also seeks the forfeiture of firearms. These charges were filed as the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms. This case has been assigned to and will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lesley J. Miller Lowery.

 

The specific sentence in each case to be imposed upon conviction will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

 

The United States Attorney's Office emphasized that an Indictment is merely an allegation and that all persons charged are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
