JOHNSTOWN, Pa. — A resident of Shawville, PA, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of violating federal firearms laws, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.

The one-count Indictment named Russell Glen Hurley, 35, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment presented to the court, on or about April 7, 2019, Hurley knowingly, intentionally, and unlawfully, possessed a firearm, after having previously been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Arnold P. Bernard Jr. is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and Lawrence Township Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
