Tok Man indicted by Federal Grand Jury for being a felon in possession of firearms
Anchorage, Alaska-U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced today that a Tok man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Anchorage for possessing firearms as a convicted felon.
Floyd Julius Stuck, 48, of Tok, Alaska, was charged in a one count indictment.
The indictment alleges that Stuck illegally possessed six firearms on February 2, 2016, and notes that a total of 31 firearms were seized from Stuck’s property on February 2, 2016. Stuck is a four-time felon, whose felony convictions date as far back as 1991 when he was convicted of burglary in the second degree.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrea W. Hattan, who presented the case to the grand jury, indicated that the law provides for a maximum total sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both, for the charged offense. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
The United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the United States Marshal Service, both branches of the Department of Justice, and the Alaska State Troopers conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
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.
