He is additionally charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, contrary to Title 18, United States Code, Sections 922(g)(1) and 924(c)(1)(A). He faces up to 10 years of imprisonment for possessing a firearm as a felon, and a mandatory 5 years of imprisonment up to a lifetime of imprisonment for possessing the firearm in furtherance of drug distribution. 

This case was investigated by the City of Manitowoc Police Department and the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Office. 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.
