Fremont Man Faces Firearms Charge

An information was filed against Timothy J. Miller, age 30, of Fremont, Ohio, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The information charges Miller with possession of two silencers and an AR-15 firearm that were not registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, and the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorneys Noah P. Hood and Gene Crawford.
