U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Alabama

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Alan Lee Baky, 41, of Bayou La Batre, was sentenced in federal court for his illegal possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.  Baky pled guilty to the charge in July of 2018. 

United States District Court Judge Callie V. S. Granade imposed a sentence of 46 months imprisonment, and ordered that Baky undergo substance abuse treatment.  When Baky is released from custody, he will be required to serve a three-year term of supervised release.  No fine was imposed in his case, but he was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment.  The judge also ordered that the weapon which Baky illegally possessed would be forfeited to the United States. 

The Bayou La Batre Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigations conducted the investigation in the case.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria A. Bedwell.
