Hillsboro Man Sentenced On Federal Firearm Charges

WICHITA, KAN. – A Hillsboro man was sentenced Monday to 180 months in federal prison on firearms charges, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

David G. Nicholas, Jr., 45, Hillsboro, Kan., was convicted on three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm following a felony conviction.

During trial, prosecutors presented evidence that Nicholas was a parole absconder in October 2013 when the U.S. Marshals Service arrested him in Marion County, Kan. At the time, he possessed a .22-caliber handgun and a .30-06 caliber rifle and ammunition.

Grissom commended the U.S. Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
