Appleton Felon Indicted on Federal Firearms Charge

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Wisconsin

United States Attorney Richard G. Frohling of the Eastern District of Wisconsin announced that on January 19, 2022, a federal grand jury returned an indictment against Mark A. Dreier (age: 64) of Appleton, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Dreier, a convicted felon, possessed a dozen firearms in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(1) and 924(a)(2).  If convicted of possessing the firearms, he faces up to ten years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. 

This case was investigated by the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
