A Russellville man has pled guilty in federal court to possessing an unregistered sawed-off shotgun.
Forty-four year old Tracy Green Baskerville pled guilty before United States District Judge Greg Stivers this week pled guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of possession of an unregistered modified firearm, announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman.
A news release says he faces 15 years to life in federal prison, a $500,000 fine and five years of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.
According to court records, on April 27, 2015, the Russellville Police Department and the Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call from Baskerville’s mother’s residence. During the call with 911, a woman could be heard pleading for someone to “put down the gun.” An investigation by officers revealed Baskerville had threatened to kill his girlfriend and brother.
A search of the residence, consented to by Baskerville’s mother, revealed the firearm in question. Logan County sheriff’s deputies arrested Baskerville.
