Green Bay Felon Indicted for Possessing Firearms and Drug Trafficking Activity

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

Gregory J. Haanstad, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on June 6, 2023, a federal grand jury returned an indictment against Fabian J. Duarte (age: 32) of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Duarte, a felon, was in possession of two firearms in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(1). Duarte is also alleged to have possessed with the intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 841(a) and 841(b)(1)(C).

As a convicted felon, Duarte is prohibited from ever possessing a firearm under state and federal law and faces up to 15 years’ imprisonment and a $250,000 fine if convicted of that charge. He faces an additional 20 years’ imprisonment if convicted of the drug charge. 

This case was investigated by the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). 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. 

This case is being investigated and prosecuted under the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) initiative.  PSN is a federal, state, and local law enforcement collaboration to identify, investigate, and prosecute individuals responsible for violent crimes in our neighborhoods. The PSN strategy brings together all levels of law enforcement and community resources to reduce violent crime and improve the quality of life in all our neighborhoods.
