Natchitoches felon sentenced for illegal possession of a firearm | Around The Town


 A Natchitoches man was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Dee D. Drell, to nearly four years in prison followed by one year of supervised release, for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to the Department of Justice, on August 12, 2018, Glenmora police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Dustin James Aguillard, 29. During the course of the traffic stop, Aguillard consented to a search of the vehicle and informed the officer that his sister’s firearm was underneath the passenger seat. The officer found a Taurus pistol and ammunition underneath the passenger seat.

Aguillard is a convicted felon, having previously been convicted of simple burglary in November 2016, and knew that as a convicted felon he was prohibited from possessing the pistol and ammunition.

The ATF and Glenmora Police Department conducted the investigation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica D. Cassidy prosecuted the case.
