PORTLAND, Ore. – Robert Todd Britt, 27, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown to 15 years in federal prison following his plea of guilty to being an Armed Career Criminal in possession of a firearm. Britt pled guilty to the charge on June 11, 2014, and has been in custody since the time of his arrest on December 26, 2013.
Salem police officers arrested Britt based on a state warrant charging him with robbery II. At the time of his arrest, a loaded .22 caliber pistol was found in his front pocket. The Armed Career Criminal Act provides for a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years’ incarceration for individuals who have previously been convicted of at least three violent felonies or serious drug offenses. Britt was eligible for the 15-year sentence based upon the following prior convictions:
The federal sentence was imposed to run concurrently with Marion County sentences received on June 25, 2014 for robbery II, identity theft, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and assault on a public safety officer.
This case was investigated by ATF and the Salem Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Fred Weinhouse.
