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

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Kenneth Delano Fultz, Jr., age 46, of Okmulgee, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 42 months imprisonment and 3 years supervised release for Felon in Possession of Firearm and Ammunition, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 922(g)(1), 924(a)(2) and 924(e)(1). The charges arose from an investigation by the Okmulgee Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Indictment alleged that on or about January 16, 2018, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, Kenneth Delano Fultz, Jr., having been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, knowingly possessed a Sig Sauer, Model SP, 9mm semi-automatic pistol, a firearm in and affecting commerce, and Eleven (11) rounds Tulammo, 7.62 x 39 caliber ammunition, which had been shipped and transported in interstate commerce. 

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “This investigation and prosecution is one of many such cases in Okmulgee County and throughout the Eastern District of Oklahoma since Project Safe Neighborhoods (“PSN”) was reemphasized by the Department of Justice a year ago. One of the defining characteristics of PSN is that state, local, tribal, and federal agencies work together to take violent criminals off the street, thereby reducing violent crime. This is one of many successes that has occurred as a result of close working relationships between the Okmulgee Police Department and the ATF.”

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Linda Epperley represented the United States. The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
