This article has been updated to include new information.

A man indicted by a Juneau grand jury on charges of sexual assault and harassment was arrested in New Mexico on Sunday, the Alaska Department of Law announced.

Dr. Jeffrey Fultz, 58, was arrested on April 18 after being indicted on April 8 on charges of three counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of first-degree harassment, according to Department of Law. The indictments stem from Fultz’s alleged actions while working as a chiropractor for the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium from 2016 to 2020, according to the department.

The investigation began in 2020, after a victim who reported being sexually assaulted while receiving medical treatment in Juneau, said Lt. Krag Campbell, a Juneau Police Department spokesperson, in a news release. The Juneau Police Department investigated the allegations, and a warrant was issued following the indictment.

A Juneau resident familiar with Fultz’s current location notified JPD of Fultz’s move to Santa Fe, and JPD personnel worked with the Santa Fe Police Department to coordinate Fultz’s arrest, according to police. Fultz was arrested at a business in the Santa Fe area and is being held at a jail in New Mexico pending his extradition to Juneau.

The case, being prosecuted by the Juneau District Attorney’s Office, carries a maximum sentence of 99 years imprisonment, according to Department of Law. The Juneau Police Department asks anyone with information on Fultz’s case or similar allegations to contact their Criminal Investigation Unit.
