The charges in the complaint are merely accusations.  The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.  Cruse appeared on December 12 before United States Magistrate Judge Christian F. Hummel.  Following a detention hearing held yesterday, Cruse was detained pending trial.

If convicted, Cruse faces at least 5 years and up to 20 years in prison, a term of post-release supervision of at least 5 years and up to life, and a fine of up to $250,000.  A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and other factors.  Additionally, if convicted, Cruse would be required to register as a sex offender.

This case is being investigated by the FBI and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Emmet O’Hanlon.
