SENTENCING

An Elkhart man faces more than three years in prison in a federal gun case.

Joshua Ray, 29, was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison and two years of probation late last week after he pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of machine guns, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for northern Indiana.

In the charge, Ray admitted to having auto switch devices that can convert a semi-automatic handgun to a fully-automatic weapon, the release shows.

The case stems from May 2019 when police intercepted a package for Ray that contained 40 auto switch devices. Police then searched his house later that month and found more devices, along with various firearms, according to the release.
