Parolee And Washington Park Resident Indicted On Gun Charges

July 20, 2012

Reginald Davis, a parolee and resident of Washington Park, was indicted on July 18, 2012, for being a felon in possession of a firearm in April 2012, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today.

The indictment alleges that on or about April 18, 2012, Davis knowingly possessed a shotgun after having been convicted of a felony punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year in violation of federal law.

An indictment is a formal charge against a defendant. Under the law, a defendant is presumed to be innocent of a charge and is entitled to a fair trial at which the Government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

If convicted, Davis could face a term of imprisonment of no more than 10 years, a fine of no more than $250,000, no more than 3 years of supervised release following any term of imprisonment, and a $100 special assessment fee.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Illinois Department of Corrections East St. Louis Parole Office.

The case is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Monica A. Stump.
