Convicted Felon from Alexander City Sentenced to 130 Months in Federal Prison for Illegally Possessing Firearms
Montgomery, Alabama – Today, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Alabama, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Enterprise Police Department, announce that four individuals were arrested on February 23, 2022, following federal indictments on unrelated gun charges.
An indictment is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
All individuals named above made their initial appearance in federal court in Montgomery on the same day they were arrested. If convicted, each of the accused are facing a maximum sentence of ten years in prison. There is no parole in the federal system.
These cases are part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
United States Attorney Sandra J. Stewart would like to thank the Enterprise Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for investigating these cases, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Justin Jones, Russell Duraski, Stephen Moulton, and Eric Counts are prosecuting the cases.
