MARTINSBURG — Men from Augusta and Burlington were among seven sentenced in U.S. District Court Monday.
Ryan Lambert Barnes, 31, of Augusta, was sentenced to five years of probation by Judge Gina Groh.
Barnes pled guilty on Nov. 27 to “knowing transfer of a short-barreled shotgun.” The announcement said that on Aug. 30 in Hampshire County, Barnes sold a Revelation shotgun with no serial number on it to a confidential informant for $100. Conversation during the transaction revealed that Barnes knew the shotgun was too short and not registered.
The Hampshire County Sheriff’s Department and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul T. Camilletti prosecuted.
Donald Nelson Davey II, 34, of Burlington was sentenced to 37 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.
Davey pled on Oct. 10 to “felon in possession of ammunition” when he was caught last April 9 with 20 Remington pellet shells and a Remington 20-gauge slug. He had previously been convicted of possession of counterfeit securities in West Virginia’s Northern District federal court.
Davey was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals pending assignment to a federal prison.
