Youngstown man indicted on firearms, other charges
Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Cleveland, Ohio, returned a three-count indictment charging Isaac Green, Jr., age 57, of Youngstown, Ohio, with possession of an unregistered modified shotgun, being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, and possession of counterfeit currency.
Count 1 of the indictment charges that on or about June 21, 2012, Green possessed a Boito FIE, .410 gauge shotgun, modified with a barrel length of approximately 10-3/8" and an overall length of approximately 19-3/4", which was not registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Records, as required by law.
Count 2 of the indictment charges Green with possession of the Boito FIE modified shotgun, a .44 Magnum revolver, a .357 Taurus revolver and ammunition after he had been previously convicted of Uttering Counterfeit Obligations in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio.
Count 3 of the indictment charges Green with being in possession of approximately $25,000 of counterfeit currency.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentences will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the U.S. Secret Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Youngstown Field Office. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David M. Toepfer.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
