GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) — A Chilton man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for reportedly manufacturing numerous firearms and firearm-parts for an Australian criminal and gun-enthusiast.
According to the US Attorney of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, 59-year-old Andy Lloyd Huebschmann exported rifle kits to Australia illegally. In those kits, officials say there were component parts for rifles that could function with either semi-automatic or fully automatic triggers, and 1911 firearm frames that could be assembled into completed pistols.
In addition to the prison sentence, Huebschmann was ordered to pay a $15,000 fine and will spend one year on supervised release following his release.
