Sacramento Man Indicted by Federal Grand Jury For Firearms Trafficking



A Federal Grand Jury in Sacramento issued a indictment yesterday against a Sacramento man alleging his trafficking in illegal firearms trafficking. The suspect, Shawn Darrell Wilson, 27, was charged with 27 counts dealing firearms without a license, possessing a firearm as a felon, and illegal possession of a machine gun. 

According to court documents, Wilson met with an undercover agent and two confidential sources on 17 occasions between September 12, 2017, and December 8, 2017, and sold them a variety of firearms, including a fully automatic machine gun, several AR-15-type rifles and pistols, and handguns. In all, Wilson sold investigators 46 firearms, many of which lacked a serial number or other identifying markings. 
Because his is a convicted felon, Wilson is prohibited from possessing firearms. This case is the joint investigation by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with special assistance from the Sacramento Police Department and the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office’s Gangs, Hate Crimes, and Narcotics unit. 
No trial date has been established and the case will be tried by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy H. Delgado. If convicted of dealing firearms without a license, Wilson faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The maximum penalty for possessing a firearm as a felon and illegal possession of a machine gun is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
