Reva Man Charged With Stalking, ID Fraud, Other Charges

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA -- A resident of Reva, Virginia, who was arrested in March on a Federal criminal complaint, has been indicted by a Federal Grand Jury sitting in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia in Charlottesville.

The grand jury has charged Kenneth Edward Kuban, 61, of Reva, Virginia, with one count of stalking, one count of stalking in violation of a protection order, one count of identification fraud and one count of violating a protection order within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States

The charges in the indictment allege that Kuban knowingly caused others to travel in interstate commerce to unknowingly stalk the victim, thereby placing the victim in fear of serious bodily injury and causing substantial emotional distress.

If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum possible penalty of up to five years in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000 on each count.

The investigation of the case was conducted by the Library of Congress-Office of the Inspector General. Special Assistant United States Attorney Jason Beaton will prosecute the case for the United States.

A Grand Jury indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial with the burden on the government to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
