Bartlett man sentenced to prison for 2 years on weapons-related charge

Updated: January 9, 2013 6:23PM

A Bartlett man charged with illegally owning four assault-style weapons was sentenced to two years in prison Wednesday.

Tony E. Johnson, 45, was sentenced after pleading guilty to not possessing a Firearm Owners Identification card, DuPage County authorities said.

Johnson was charged last year with having an AR-15 rifle and three other assault-style guns that could easily be modified to serve as automatic weapons, according to court records.

With credit for time already served, Johnson could be released from custody in as little as four months.
