Felon With A Gun Sentenced In Federal Court

Acting United States Attorney Steven E. Butler of the Southern District of Alabama announced that George Ralph Leverette, Jr., 45, of Satsuma, was sentenced today in federal court on the charge of felon in possession of a firearm.  Leverette pled guilty to that charge in December of 2016.

The case was investigated by the Saraland Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
