A Jefferson City man who used to be a supervisor at the federal courthouse pleaded guilty to illegally selling guns to convicted felons on Tuesday.
Victor Nahum Vargas, 40, pleaded guilty to two counts of selling firearms to convicted felons and one count of making false statements. He admitted to selling five guns to a person he knew to be a convicted felon in April 2018. He said he sold another 11 guns to a person he knew to be a convicted felon the next month.
Vargas has been in custody since May 2018. He faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison for each count. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled once the investigation is complete.
