Cleveland man with aggravated robbery conviction sentenced to six years in prison for having rifle with obliterated serial number

A Cleveland man was sentenced to six years in prison for having a rifle with an obliterated serial number and ammunition.

Sharrieff Muhammad, 48, also known as Robert White, previously pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Muhammad possessed a Norinco SKS 7.62 mm rifle with a partially obliterated serial number and ammunition on Oct. 19, 2017. Muhammad was not allowed to possess firearms because of a prior conviction for aggravated robbery with specifications.

This case was investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brian Deckert and Michelle Baeppler.
