A Mosinee man will spend five years in prison for unlawful possession of firearms by a felon.
Prosecutors say on October 5, 2012, police found four loaded firearms in Alvarez's bedroom. Alvarez, who was present during the search, admitted that he was a felon and that the guns belonged to him. Two of the firearms had been stolen from Statton's General Store in Tomahawk, Wis., three days earlier.
Alvarez pleaded guilty to this charge on July 16, 2013.
In sentencing the defendant, Judge Crabb noted Alvarez's lengthy criminal record and history of drug abuse. Alvarez has a prior felony conviction for possession of narcotics.
The charge against Alvarez was the result of an investigation conducted by the Wausau Police Department, Marathon County Sheriff's Office, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
