Sepulveda, also known as “Cat Man Jim,” is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property, four counts of interstate transportation of stolen property, and aiding and abetting.

If convicted, he could face a total maximum sentence of 45 years imprisonment, three years supervised release, a $1,250,000 fine, and a $500 special.
