Owenton Man Sentenced to 27 Months for Selling Firearms to Convicted Felon

LEXINGTON — David L. Cammack, 61, of Owenton, Ky., was sentenced Tuesday to 27 months in prison by United States District Court Judge Danny C. Reeves
for selling firearms to a convicted felon.

In 2012, Cammack, a federal firearm licensed (FFL) dealer , admitted that on three separate occasions he sold one or more firearms in Owen County to a person he knew was a convicted felon. Under federal law, convicted felons are prohibited from legally purchasing and possessing firearms. Cammack has voluntarily surrendered his FFL license.

Cammack pleaded guilty to the charges in December of 2012.

Under federal law, Cammack must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence, and, upon release, will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for three years.

Kerry B. Harvey, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, and Stuart L. Lowery, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (Louisville Field Division), jointly made the announcement.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Robert M. Duncan.
