June 27, 2014

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announces today that Larry Gene Broadnax of Mobile was sentenced following a March 2014 guilty plea to a charge of being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.  Broadnax was previously convicted in Mobile County in 2010, of Unlawful Distribution of a Controlled Substance and Robbery.  By virtue of these convictions, Broadnax is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.  Broadnax possessed a 20 gauge and a 12 gauge shotgun on April 30, 2013, in connection with a home invasion burglary he participated in with three other individuals.  During the home invasion a female occupant of the residence was raped by one of the individuals with Broadax.

Possession of a firearm or ammunition by a previously convicted felon is a violation of Title 18, United States Code Section 922(g)(1).  United States District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade imposed the statutory maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment, to be followed by 3 years supervised release.

This case was investigated by Detective Brad Grandquest of the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and Task Force Officer Lorne Watts of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives.
