"Victim" In Home Invasion In Which Intruder Was Killed Is Now Facing Federal Charges

Thursday, September 27, 2012

A 24-year-old man who was the victim of a home invasion a month ago in which one of the intruders was killed is now facing federal charges.

Adam Vogelmeier was arrested on state charges after police found a safe, drugs and weapons inside the residence on Florida Street. Ronald Wright was killed by officers who responded to the scene.

Vogelmeier has now been indicted by federal authorities, and he appeared Thursday morning before Federal Magistrate Court Judge Susan Lee.

In Federal Court, he is charged with being a felon in possession of weapons and ammunition as well as in possession of a bullet-proof vest.

Prosecutor Chris Poole said he faces up to 10 years in prison on the charges.

The prosecutor and the probation office did not oppose allowing Vogelmeier to be released pending trial Dec. 3, but Magistrate Lee said she had strong concerns. She told attorney Leslie Cory, "I'm afraid your client has a very serious drug problem and he does not think he needs treatment."

She said he told a probation officer that he previously used marijuana and heroin and snorted roxycodone daily and that he had used drugs a couple of time since the home invasion and moving in with his parents.

The magistrate finally agreed to his release under strict conditions, including a drug assessment and wering of an electronic monitoring device.

Trump - And Response

Hardly a day, even a moment, goes by when some news flash appears sharing what  Trump  said or did.

Instead, this grown man and our president defies child cooing and smiling and instead frowns amid growing anger that we voted for this man, a grown up not quite potty-trained.  ... (click for more)
