Washington Park Man Sentenced For Firearm Offense

Terrell A. Rey, 28, of Washington Park, Illinois, was sentenced in federal district court on November 8, 2013, to 30 months in prison, to be followed by three years supervised release, a $100 special assessment, and a $250 fine, for unlawful possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today.

Facts presented in court revealed that On October 28, 2012, police officers responded to Rey’s home. The officers announced themselves and encountered Rey just inside the front door of the residence, at which point they observed a firearm in his back pants pocket. Rey was taken into police custody, interviewed and read his Miranda rights. He admitted to possessing a firearm, knowing he was a previously convicted felon.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Washington Park Police Department. Special Assistant United States Attorney Neal C. Hong prosecuted the case.
