Faunus Doney to plead guilty in federal criminal case to swindling elderly victims out of $337,344 in annuity scam

Faunus Doney, also known as Faunus Arden, who ran for Mat-Su Borough Assembly in the fall of 2019 before dropping out of the race, has reached a plea agreement with the United States Attorney’s Office in Anchorage in a wire fraud case.

The terms of the plea agreement are as follows: Doney will admit to the conduct outlined, receive a prison sentence of up to 60 months (as determined by the judge), and pay restitution of $337,344 plus various fines and fees.

This plea agreement was filed in the United States District Court in Anchorage yesterday (September 22, 2020). It is unclear when the court hearing on this plea agreement and the sentencing will take place.

It is unclear if Doney still resides in Alaska. According to a Google search, he joined a Kennewick, Washington Real Estate Firm in the fall of 2019. However, he also had some listings in Anchorage and Chugiak this past summer according to his Instagram page.

In June, Faunus announced that he has written a couple of books.
