Akron man indicted for having firearms, fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine

An Akron man was indicted for having firearms and dealing fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine.

Carl Hundley, Jr., 45, was charged in a five-count indictment with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, distribution of fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine.

Hundley on April 10 possessed fentanyl and heroin. He also had a Ruger pistol, a Taurus revolver and ammunition, despite previous convictions for trafficking heroin and other crimes, according to the indictment.

Hundley on Aug. 9 possessed fentanyl and methamphetamine, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique

to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal records, if any, the defendant’s role in the offenses and the characteristics of the violations.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Katz.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
