Redby felon sentenced for possessing a 12-gauge shotgun

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 25, 2013


MINNEAPOLIS—Yesterday in federal court, a 27-year-old Redby man was sentenced for possessing a 12-gauge, sawed-off shotgun. On April 24, 2013, United States District Court Judge John R. Tunheim sentenced Timothy Clarence Stately to 84 months in prison on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Stately was indicted on April 3, 2012, and pleaded guilty on August 23, 2012.

In the plea agreement, Stately admitted that between May 29 and 31, 2011, he possessed a 12-gauge, sawed-off shotgun with an obliterated serial number. At a minimum, he had possession of the gun during the late evening of May 30, 2011, through the early morning of May 31, 2011. During that time, he admittedly participated in numerous felony offenses, including shooting into two occupied dwellings, shooting at another residence as well as a retail establishment, and burglarizing and setting fire to a trailer home. Because he is a felon, Stately is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time. He was previously convicted of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.

This case was the result of an investigation by the Red Lake Tribal Police Department and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey S. Paulsen.
