Former prosecutors, police chief convicted of weapons charges
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - A federal jury in Detroit has convicted two
ex-Ogemaw County prosecutors and a former Rose City police chief on
weapons and other charges.
The charges stem from what the federal government says was the
illegal purchase of machine guns.
Gary Theunick -- a former assistant prosecutor -- was convicted
today on 26 counts. Yesterday, Frederick MacKinnon -- a former
prosecutor -- and Maxwell Garnett -- the former police chief --
each were convicted.
Sentencing for all three is January 15th. An appeal is expected.
Prosecutors say the men used official letterhead to obtain
machine guns and silencers for personal use that normally could
only be obtained for law enforcement purposes and failed to pay
taxes on the guns.
