NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Virginia man pleaded guilty on Friday to conspiracy to make false statements in connection with 45 firearm transactions.
According to court documents, from June 2019 through June 2020, 23-year-old Kevin Staton Jr. of Chesapeake engaged in buying and selling firearms without a license.
Prosecutors say at least 15 of the 45 firearms Staton bought were recovered from crime scenes. He’s scheduled for sentencing in April 2022.
