13 charges filed against Brazil man

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Thirteen charges were filed against a Brazil man in Vigo County Superior Court Division 6 Wednesday, for his alleged involvement in a police chase involving gunfire, a home invasion and a standoff in Terre Haute Jan. 22.

Appearing before Superior Court Judge Michael Lewis, Douglas M. Fulk, 30, was formally charged with 13 various criminal allegations.

Court records confirm the Vigo County Prosecutor's Office filed the following charges on Jan. 21:

* Three class A felony attempted murder charges,

*Three class B felony aggravated battery charges,

* A class B felony burglary,

*Three individual class D felony charges for intimidation, resisting law enforcement and criminal recklessness,

* Two individual class A misdemeanor charges for carrying a handgun without a license, and

* A class A misdemeanor charge for resisting law enforcement.

Depending upon the mitigating and aggravating circumstances of the case, a person convicted of a class A felony could be sentenced to incarceration for 20-50 years, 6-20 years for a class B felony, six months-3 years for a class D felony and 0-1 year for a class A misdemeanor.

How a person serves the sentences imposed on multiple guilty convictions can be ordered by the judge to run concurrent (at the same time) or consecutive (each sentence completed individually).

A not guilty plea was entered of Fulk's behalf and attorney Angela Bullock was assigned as the public defender in the case during the court proceedings. Fulk is currently incarcerated on a $500,000 cash bond with no 10 percent allowed at the Vigo County Jail awaiting further court proceedings, scheduled for Feb. 8.

Bet he won't have that cocky look on his face when they put him in a cell with "Bubba". (no offense intended to anyone called Bubba)

Ang_65- You are foolish if you think he won't receive any jail time. He won't see light for quite some time.

Well looks like the state prisons rehabilitation programs are not working, seems how this individual just got out of carlise. Isn't it nice to know that your tax dollars are going to people like this to help rehabilitate theirselves for the "outside world". Just think we are also paying for them to go to college, and get transplants if they are on death row. Now why would we wonder why this country is so messed up?

Sorry, I don't believe in rehabilitation for these guys (or pedophiles). I hope he does serve time for this .. it's apparent his crimes are escalating. I don't want to find out what he could be capable of the NEXT time.

Should have stayed in Clay County. Lee would have pled him out with time served.
