Convicted Sex Offender Sentenced On Gun Charge To 10 Months In Prison, $10,000 Fine
United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that William Henry Pittman, 67, of Mobile, was sentenced today for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Pittman was sentenced to ten months in prison and fined $10,000 for possession of a firearm after being convicted in 1989 of transportation of a minor for sexual purposes and distribution of a controlled substance to a minor.
Pittman pled guilty in August to being a felon in possession of a firearm. Deputies with the United States Marshals service discovered the firearm in the course of an unrelated investigation in May, 2012, and Pittman was indicted the following month.
The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Mobile Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Sean P. Costello handled the prosecution on behalf of the United States.
