FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 6, 2012

 

A North Olmsted man was sentenced to more than nine years in prison after previously pleading guilty to two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

“This sentence should send a clear message to those who would pack firearms despite previous convictions that forbid them from doing so,” Dettelbach said.

U.S. District Judge Christopher Boyko sentenced Katrenick to 110 months in prison.

In 2011, David Katrenick, 45, possessed two .22-caliber rifles, a 22-250-caliber rifle, two 12-gauge shotguns, a 30-06-caliber rifle ammunition and ammunition, according to court documents.

Katrenick was not allowed to possess firearms because of several previous felony convictions, including a 1986 conviction for rape and aggravated sodomy in Fulton County, Georgia, a 1990 conviction for aggravated assault and theft in Gwinnett County, Georgia and a 1986 conviction for burglary in DeKalb County, Georgia, according to court records.

Katrenick owned Lazy Dave’s Tattoo Shop on Lorain Road in North Olmsted, according to court documents.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Blas Serrano and Jason M. Katz following an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the North Olmsted Police Department.
