Description: Kansas City, KS - Kansas City, Kan., Man Sentenced On Project Safe Neighborhoods Firearm Charge

A Kansas City, Kan., man was sentenced on January 16, 2018 to 92 months in federal prison for unlawful possession of a 9 mm handgun that was used in a robbery.

Joshua J. Flaugher, 32, Kansas City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. In his plea, Flaugher admitted that investigators seized a loaded 9 mm handgun with a 30-round extended magazine from his residence. Flaugher was arrested at his aunt’s home in the 2400 block of Everett Avenue. Because he had a prior felony conviction in Wyandotte County District Court on a charge of aggravated battery, he was prohibited by federal law from possessing a firearm.

Beall commended the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

This prosecution was brought under Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a Justice Department program aimed at prosecuting convicted felons who violate a federal ban on possession of firearms. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed U.S. Attorney’s Offices nationwide to emphasize PSN prosecutions as part of a national strategy to reduce violent crime.

Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 92 months in prison.
