Four Years in Prison for Man Who Stole Firearms
A Jackson County, IL, man was sentenced on August 16, 2012, on charges of Stealing Firearms from a Federal Licensee and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today.
Michael Shane Satterwhite, a/k/a “Shady Shane,” 36, of Murphysboro, was sentenced to 48 months’ imprisonment and 3 years’ supervised release. Satterwhite was also ordered to pay a $400.00 fine and $477.00 in restitution. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that, on November 25, 2011, Satterwhite broke into B & B Guns and Ammo in Murphysboro. Satterwhite stole two firearms from that business. Because he is a convicted felon, Satterwhite is prohibited from possessing any firearm.
The investigation was conducted by the Murphysboro Police Department, Jackson County Sheriffs Office, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
The case was assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Amanda A. Robertson for prosecution.
