PITTSBURGH – A resident of Allegheny County has been sentenced in federal court to 30 months imprisonment and three years supervised release on his convictions for violating federal firearms laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

On August 3, 2018, United States District Court Judge Mark Hornak imposed the sentence on Dalton Douglas Duschl, age 23, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

According to information presented to the court, between January 3, 2017, and February 13, 2017, Duschl, a felon, knowingly possessed and sold four firearms, two of which were stolen, to undercover law enforcement agents.
