A Springfield man pleaded guilty to illegal firearms charges in federal court Monday.

According to U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling, 29-year-old Hector Navarro pleaded guilty to two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Lelling said in September 2016 Navarro was in possession of a 12 gauge shotgun.

In October 2016, Lelling said Navarro was in possession of a 9mm pistol, a .30 caliber pistol, a 12 gauge shotgun, 12 rounds of 9mm ammunition, one round of .380 ammunition, and three rounds of .30 caliber ammunition. 

Navarro is prohibited from possessing firearms as a result of a prior conviction of a crime that was punishable by a prison sentence of more than one year.

Lelling said the charge carries a sentence of no more than 10 years in prison, at least one year of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000.

Navarro is scheduled to be sentenced on September 6.
