LAREDO, Texas – A federal jury has convicted a 74-year-old local felon for unlawfully possessing a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan Patrick. They deliberated for one hour before returning the guilty verdict against Javier J. Trevino following a one-day trial. 

 

During the trial, the jury heard testimony about an Aug. 10, 2016, search warrant authorities executed on Trevino’s residence. Upon entering the home, law enforcement observed multiple firearms in the living room, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms. Authorities ultimately discovered more than 120 firearms and a significant amount of ammunition within Trevino’s residence.

 

Trevino had a felony conviction for making false statements in relation to the purchase of firearms from 1987 and was, therefore, prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition per federal law.

 

At trial, the defense attempted to convince the jury Trevino owns multiple homes and did not reside in the home where authorities seized the firearms. He argued that because he resided somewhere else, he was not in possession of those firearms. The jury did not believe those claims and found Trevino guilty as charged. 

 

U.S. District Judge Marina Garcia Marmolejo presided over the trial and set sentencing for Feb. 24, 2020. At that time, Trevino faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 maximum fine.

 

He has been and will remain in custody pending that hearing.

 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Webb County Sheriff’s Office and Laredo Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Christopher dos Santos and Anthony Brown prosecuted the case.
