Lake Charles man convicted on federal firearm charges

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - 27-year-old Lawrence Humphrey was sentenced to 20 years in prison in Federal Court Wednesday on charges of possession of two firearms by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.

According to Court Testimony, Humphrey was arrested in July 2007 after fleeing from Lake Charles Police officers, and less than a month later was arrested again for entering two different addresses uninvited and waving around a gun.

This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney's Office as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide program designed to reduce violence in our communities by aggressively using existing federal firearms laws.

This case was investigated by Task Force Agent James Milner, with the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Lake Charles Field Office, and the Lake Charles Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Myers P. Namie.

"I don't see anything right there that would make me stop."   Broussard isn't the only person who...
