Couple faces gun charges

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A federal grand jury in Cincinnati on Wednesday indicted a Mount Healthy couple, charging them with two counts of firearms-related offenses.

        The indictment charges that, between March 1996 and August 1998, Whitney and Kelli Williamson purchased firearms, including handguns, shotguns and rifles, from licensed gun dealers and tried to resell them at a profit at flea markets, gun shows and from their home.

        In 1996, Mr. Williamson sold 10 semi-automatic handguns to an undercover agent of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF), the indictment says. It also alleges that in July 1998, in southern Indiana, Mr. Williamson sold a 22-caliber rifle to an undercover police officer working with the BATF.

        Each count carries up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and up to three years of supervised released.

        A trial date has not been set.
