On 04/30/2020, the Juneau Police Department began an investigation into the report of a sexual assault, after a 34-year-old female Juneau resident reported she was sexually assaulted by a local medical professional. The victim reported to police that she had been receiving medical care from 57-year-old Juneau resident, Dr. Jeffrey Fultz, at a medical clinic in the 3200 block of Hospital Drive. While receiving treatment, the victim reported Dr. Fultz engaged in nonconsensual sexual contact with her. During the course of the investigation, at least two other female victims came forward and provided similar allegations.
At the conclusion of the investigation, the case was referred to the Juneau District Attorney's office. On 04/08/2021, a Juneau Grand Jury indicted Fultz on the following charges and a $25,000 warrant was issued for his arrest;
- Charge # 1: Sex Assault 2nd degree a class B felony
- Charge # 2: Sex Assault 2nd degree a class B felony
- Charge # 3: Sex Assault 2nd degree a class B felony
- Charge # 4: Harassment 1st degree a class A misdemeanor
Fultz had moved from Juneau earlier in the year and was believed to be living in Santa Fe New Mexico. A Juneau resident learned of the arrest warrant and notified the Juneau Police Department of Fultz's current location. Juneau Police Dispatch worked with the Santa Fe Police Department to request assistance in locating Fultz on his warrant. Based off information provided in the tip, Officers with the Santa Fe Police Department recently located Fultz at a business in the Santa Fe area and placed him under arrest per the warrant.
Fultz is currently being held at a jail in the Santa Fe area and is waiting extradition back to Juneau to stand trial.
