The United States Attorney’s Office announced that 34-year old Michael Mehler of Rolla was sentenced to 48 months in prison for illegal possession of a firearm. Mehler pleaded guilty last December to one felony count of being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm in December 2008, in Phelps County.  Due to his criminal history, he is forbidden by law to own or possess firearms.  He appeared for sentencing before United States District Judge Rodney W. Sippel. This case was investigated and prosecuted as part of the Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative, which seeks to prevent violent crime through enforcement of federal firearms laws, such as the law prohibiting convicted felons from possessing firearms. The Rolla Police Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol locally investigated the case. Assistant United States Attorney Pat Judge handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
