   FELON IN POSSESSION OF MULTIPLE FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION
              SENTENCED ON FEDERAL GUN CHARGES

       Lisa Godbey Wood, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia,

announced today that defendant Troy O’Neal Redd was sentenced in U.S. District Court in

Augusta, Georgia by U.S. District Judge Dudley H. Bowen on April 13, 2006. Redd was

sentenced to 96 months incarceration, a fine of $3,600.00, six years supervised release and

a $400.00 special assessment.

       Redd was indicted and charged with three counts of possession of firearms by a

convicted felon and one count of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. Between

August 3, 2003 and August 8, 2003 Redd was found in possession of 18 firearms and 249

rounds of ammunition. In a December 2005 jury trial in U.S. District Court, Redd was found

guilty on all counts.

       This case was investigated by the Augusta Office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,

Firearms, and Explosives; the Department of Natural Resources; and the Burke County
Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Patricia Green Johnson prosecuted the

case for the government.
