A 31-year-old Appleton man is accused of impersonating a US Marshal in order to be excused from work.

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, a federal grand jury indicted Adam K. Fevold on Wednesday. Fevold is charged with Impersonating a Deputy US Marshal and Possessing a Firearm as a Convicted Felon. If convicted, the U.S. Attorney’s office says he faces a possible sentence of multiple years in prison, fines of $250,000, and three years of supervised release.

Fevold is accused of pretending to be a Marshal as an excuse to get out of work. Fevold is accused of telling his employer he was authorized to use U.S. Marshal-issued credentials and equipment, including a badge, handcuffs, a heatseeking drone, and bulletproof glass and emergency lights on his vehicle.

Fevold is also accused of having a Romanian-made 7.62-millimeter semi-automatic rifle while he was a convicted felon.

The United States Marshals Service and the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department investigated this case. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Timothy W. Funnell.
