Green Bay Man Indicted for Arson

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

United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on June 18, 2019, a federal grand jury issued an indictment against William A. Julius (age: 57) of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Julius “did maliciously damage by fire, a building located at 332 South Madison Street” in the City of Green Bay, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 844(1). If convicted of the charge, Julius faces a mandatory 5-year prison term and could be imprisoned for up to 20 years.  He also faces a fine of up to $250,000.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Green Bay Fire Department and the Green Bay Police Department. 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.
