BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A Baton Rouge man was sentenced to 180 months in prison and a $15,000 fine for his extensive criminal history involving crimes of violence and drug possession.
Reports indicate that on October 21, 2011 Gregory Mumphery, 33, brandished a handgun at a local night club and threatened a club patron. He was then involved in a scuffle and a security guard retrieved a handgun from Mumphrey. He was then arrested and charged in a federal indictment.
“This successful prosecution would not have happened without the diligent and coordinated effort of the Baton Rouge Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives,” U.S. Attorney Donald Cazayoux, Jr., said. “This sentence should send a warning to repeat offenders that their continued criminal conduct will be met with stiff sentences.”
This matter was investigated by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Baton Rouge Police Department. The matter was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lyman E. Thornton III.
