CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A Logan County man who possessed a sawed-off shotgun in October 2016 was sentenced today to two years and three months in federal prison, announced United States Attorney Carol Casto. Brian Kevin Sigmon, II, 34, of Henlawson, previously pled guilty to possession of an unregistered firearm.


On October 22, 2016, Sigmon possessed a shotgun that had been sawed-off, with a barrel length of less than 18 inches and an overall length of less than 26 inches. The sawed-off shotgun Sigmon possessed was not registered on the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record as required by federal law.  


The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Eric Bacaj handled the prosecution. Chief United States District Judge Thomas E. Johnston imposed the sentence.


This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun crime in the United States by networking existing local programs targeting gun crime.
