Parker man indicted on firearm charge

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Parker man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person.

Rollin Lee Dollens, 52, was indicted on Tuesday, Feb. 11. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge William D. Gerdes on Monday, March 2 and pled not guilty to the indictment.

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

The indictment alleges that on Sept. 16, 2019, Dollens, knowingly being an unlawful user of/addicted to a controlled substance, knowingly possessed a firearm in Corson County.

The charge is merely an accusation and Dollens is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force and the Corson County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron J. Cook is prosecuting the case.

Dollens was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
