FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Feb. 18, 2014

WICHITA, KAN. - A Wichita man was convicted Tuesday on federal firearms charges, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Michael R. Horn, 42, Wichita, Kan., was convicted on one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and one count of unlawful possession of ammunition after a felony conviction. During a jury trial, prosecutors presented evidence that on Sept. 16, 2013, Horn unlawfully possessed a Bersa .380 caliber handgun and 10 rounds of ammunition for the gun. Horn was prohibited by federal law from possessing a firearm because of a felony conviction in 2004 in Sedgwick County District Court on a charge of aggravated battery.

Sentencing will be scheduled at a later date. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count. Grissom commended the Wichita Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Mona Furst for their work on the case.
