Jefferson City Man Indicted for Illegal Firearm
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Jefferson City, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for illegally possessing a firearm.
Leroy Jamase Spinks, 29, of Jefferson City, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City.
Today’s indictment alleges that Spinks, having been convicted of a felony, was in possession of a Glock 9mm pistol on Oct. 14, 2015.
Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Lynn. It was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Jefferson City, Mo., Police Department.
