Fort Wayne, Indiana - The United States Attorney's Office announced that a Grand Jury sitting in Fort Wayne, Indiana, returned the following Indictment on November 20, 2013:
Jacob Miller, 50, of Auburn, Indiana, is charged in a five count Indictment with selling firearms to a known felon on or about March 28, 2013, April 15, 2013, June 14, 2013 and November 15, 2013, and dealing in firearms as an unlicensed dealer between on or about March
21, 2013, and continuing to on or about November 15, 2013. The Indictment also seeks the forfeiture of firearms and ammunition. These charges were filed as a result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This case has been assigned to and will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tina L. Nommay.
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.
If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
