HIGH DEMAND MACHINE GUN KITS - A West Virginia man has pleaded guilty to a weapons charge after he was accused of selling machine gun conversion devices to followers of a far-right extremist movement.

Timothy John Watson, 30, entered the plea Tuesday to possession of an unregistered firearm silencer in federal court in Martinsburg.

Several other charges were dropped under a plea agreement. Watson faces up to 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors said they will seek a stiffer sentence due to the seriousness of Watson's alleged conduct. They plan to show at sentencing that he made devices that could turn semi-automatic AR-15 rifles into fully automatic machine guns. Copyright 2021 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
