Warren man gets 10 years for possessing firearms, body armor

Staff report


A Warren man is going to federal prison for 10 years for being a felon in possession of firearms and possession of body armor by a violent felon.

Michael L. Green Jr., 33, of Jackson Street Southwest, who had pleaded guilty to those charges in March, drew the sentence Tuesday from U.S. District Court Judge John R. Adams. Green will be on supervised release for five years after prison.

An Ohio State Highway Patrol officer assisting Warren police arrested Green on Oct. 28, 2013, outside a house on Kenwood Drive Southwest in the aftermath of two shooting deaths in Warren.

Police went to the house at 12:44 a.m., just after shots were fired at another nearby house, damaging the home’s interior but not injuring anyone.

Green was wearing body armor and toting a .40-caliber pistol with 16 rounds of ammunition and an assault rifle with a nearly full 100-round drum magazine, the indictment says.

The indictment says Green was carrying 97 rounds of assault-rifle ammunition.
