WORCESTER- A 34-year-old Worcester man was charged Thursday in federal court in Worcester with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Leroy Byron was indicted on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, on Nov. 5, 2018, Byron was arrested during a traffic stop. Law enforcement found a loaded Intratec TEC-9 9mm Luger pistol and 32 rounds of ammunition.
Byron has been in federal custody since he was charged by complaint in Nov. 2018. He is prohibited form possession a firearm due to prior convictions.
The charging statute provides for a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, up to three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
