MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Steven Kenneth Reilly, age 34, of Kingston, Oklahoma, was sentenced to fifteen months imprisonment for one count of Making a False Statement During the Acquisition of a Firearm.

The charges arose from an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

On September 12, 2023, Reilly pled guilty to charge.  According to investigators, on December 24, 2022, Reilly attempted to redeem a pistol from EZ Pawn in Durant, Oklahoma.  During his visit, Reilly intentionally made a false written statement on the ATF Firearms Transaction Record Form 4473 asserting that he was not under indictment or information in any court for a felony, or for any other crime for which he could be imprisoned for more than one year.  In reality, at the time of the transaction, Reilly was charged with a felony crime by the state of Oklahoma in Marshall County District Court.

The Honorable Ronald A. White, Chief Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, presided over the hearings.

Assistant United States Attorney Joshua Satter represented the United States.
