LUFKIN MAN GUILTY OF FEDERAL FIREARMS VIOLATIONS

(TYLER, TX) United States Attorney John L. Ratcliffe announced today that a 27-year-old Lufkin man has pleaded guilty to federal firearms violations in the Eastern District of Texas. 

CALANDRIS DEANDRE LAMB was indicted on November 8, 2007 and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.  He pleaded guilty today before United States Magistrate Judge Judith K. Guthrie.

            According to information presented in court, Lamb was found to be in possession of a firearm on August 22, 2007 in Cherokee County.  Because Lamb has a prior felony conviction for Burglary of a Habitation in Bell County in 2000, he is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition.  Lamb has also agreed to the forfeiture of seven firearms.

            Lamb faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.00.  A sentencing date has not been set.

This case is being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney William Baldwin.
