Baldwin County Man Sentenced in Firearms Case

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Harvey Lyn Tillman, 38, of Perdido, Alabama, was sentenced on February 26, 2020, for being a felon in possession of firearms.  He entered a guilty plea to the charge in November of 2019. 

United States District Court Judge Jeffery U. Beaverstock imposed a sentence of 37 months imprisonment, to be followed by a supervised release term of three years.  During that period of supervision, Tillman will undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse.  Tillman was also ordered to pay $100 in special assessments, but no fine was imposed. 

The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
