MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A Ewen man was sentenced to prison this week in Marquette County Federal Court.
Keith Raymond, 29, received 90 months in jail and three years of supervised release for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and distribution of meth.
According to the criminal complaint, on September 8, 2017, Raymond received a sentence of 10 month’s confinement and 23 months’ probation for felony assault with a dangerous weapon in Ontonagon County Courts.
The complaint states that a confidential informant from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team arranged to purchase 3.5 grams of meth and a SKS rifle from Raymond in Ewen on June 20, 2018. After the purchase was completed, the CI informant turned over the aforementioned firearm and ammunition to ATF by Sergeant Wickstrom of UPSET on August 8, 2018. The transaction was audio and video recorded.
The complaint states the firearm and ammunition Raymond had sold to the informant was manufactured in Russia, thus, they traveled in or affected “interstate or foreign commerce.”
