FORT THOMPSON - An area man pleaded not guilty to a federal charge of possession of firearms after a prior felony conviction.

Conrad Fleury, 34, of Fort Thompson, was indicted by a federal grand jury for "felon in possession of firearms," to which he pleaded not guilty on May 6 before a U.S. magistrate court judge.

On Feb. 13, Fleury "knowingly possessed and received firearms" despite the fact he has previously been convicted of a felony, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release and a $100 fine to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The Crow Creek Agency of the Bureau of Indian Affairs is investigating the case, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan Dilges is prosecuting. A trial date has not been set.
