Chicago Man Arrested On Federal Charges For Allegedly Impersonating A U.S. Marshal Service Employee Twice In 2013
CHICAGO — A Chicago man was arrested today on federal charges for allegedly impersonating an employee of the U.S. Marshals Service on two occasions last year. The defendant, ROBERT P. ROZYCKI, was arrested without incident by deputy U.S. Marshals.
Rozycki, 37, was charged with two felony counts of impersonating a U.S. Marshals Service employee in an indictment that was returned by a federal grand jury yesterday and unsealed following his arrest. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Mason in Courtroom 2266 in the Dirksen Federal Courthouse.
The indictment charges Rozycki with falsely assuming the identity of and pretending to be a U.S. Marshals Service employee on March 3 and May 18, 2013.
Each count of impersonating a federal law enforcement officer carries a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a $250,000 fine. If convicted, the court must impose a reasonable sentence under federal statutes and the advisory United States Sentencing Guidelines.
The arrest and indictment were announced by Zachary T. Fardon, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, and Darryl McPherson, United States Marshal for the Northern District of Illinois.
The government is being represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Malizia.
The public is reminded that an indictment complaint contains only charges and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
