BOWLING GREEN, KY - (Thu 1 Feb 2018) – A Hart County, Kentucky, felon was sentenced to serve 70 months in prison followed by three years of Supervised Release, by United States District Judge Greg N. Stivers, in United States District Court yesterday, for unlawful possession of firearms announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman. There is no parole in the federal system.
Rodney Earl Staples, 52, of Munfordville, admitted on June 16, 2017, to the unlawful possession of a firearm.
Law enforcement officials became aware of Staples' criminal conduct during a follow-up investigation relating to his father's business as a federal firearms licensee and the suspected transfer of firearms to his convicted felon sons.
On August 21, 2013, law enforcement officials seized twelve firearms (11 long guns and one revolver), from Staples' residence. He claimed that the firearms belonged to his then 10-year-old son.
Staples was convicted on June 6, 2006, in Hart Circuit Court, Hart County, Kentucky, in case number 05-CR-00152, with the attempted manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance – first degree, and trafficking in marijuana.
Assistant United States Attorney Jo E. Lawless prosecuted the case. The investigation was led by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
