A Florida man has been guilty of possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon.
Daniel Stephen King faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison.
King, 28, Kissimmee, is scheduled to be sentenced on January 23, 2023.
According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, on April 23, 2022, the Osceola County Sherriff’s Office was called to King’s residence due to a domestic disturbance.
When the deputies arrived, a resident of the house frantically ran out with her four-year-old daughter.
The deputies were informed that King had a large number of firearms and ammunition in the house and that King had strapped on a bulletproof vest.
At the time, King was a convicted felon who was on probation and prohibited from possessing guns or ammunition.
The deputies surrounded the house, and after about two hours, they were able to persuade King to come out and surrender.
A warrant was obtained to search the residence and nine firearms were recovered, including three rifles, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and a ballistic vest.
A rifle safe, multiple gun lockboxes, magazines, and ammunition cans were also recovered from inside the house.
King will have to forfeit all of the firearms and ammunition which were part of the offense.
This case was investigated by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
