Not like "Batman” is likely to serve any lengthy sentences for this. Unless he is a great white defendant that is.
“John Thomas, 33, who is also known as “Batman,” pleaded guilty to two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of dealing firearms without a license, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.”
“Thomas admitted to brokering the sale of 77 illegal guns, including rifles, shotguns and handguns, prosecutors said. He was previously convicted of a felony and was not legally authorized to possess any firearms. Some of the guns had obliterated serial numbers or had previously been reported stolen.”
“Thomas either obtained the guns himself and then sold them, or he arranged for the owner of the firearms to sell the guns in exchange for a fee for setting up the transaction, prosecutors said. Unbeknownst to Thomas, the individuals who were buying the guns were cooperating with law enforcement.”
