U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of California

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment today against Adam Fuller, 33, of Sacramento, charging him with assault on a federal employee or officer, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced. 

According to court documents, on Aug. 27, Fuller assaulted a court security officer outside the United States Federal Courthouse in Sacramento by punching him in the face, causing injury to the security officer.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Protective Services and U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron L. Desmond and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Cody are prosecuting the case.

If convicted, Fuller faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables. The charges are only allegations; the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
