Mission Man Charged with Possession of Stolen Firearm and Possession of Firearm by a Prohibited Person

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Possession of Stolen Firearm and Possession of Firearm by a Prohibited Person.

Harold Fuller, Jr., age 37, was indicted on July 19, 2016.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 22, 2016, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalties upon conviction is up to 10 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund on each count.  Restitution may also be ordered.
