Kevin Genis, 27, was sentenced July 23 in U.S. District Court to 18 months in prison as well as three years of parole. He was facing a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
Genis’ sentence stems from a May 28, 2019 incident in which he sold an undercover law enforcement agent a Century Arms International 7.62 caliber AK pistol and 10 rounds of ammunition for $900, the state Attorney’s Office said.
With prior felony convictions to his name, Genis is not allowed to possess a firearm or ammunition that has moved in interstate or foreign commerce. Genis was on probation from a previous conviction when he illegally possessed and sold the pistol. He was arrested on June 27, 2019. He pleaded guilty today, July 23, to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.
