Judge Timothy Wright Faces Nine Federal Charges
According to KXAN, Wright, 70, faces nine federal charges. Prosecutors said he sold guns illegally, including to criminals, and tried to help smuggle guns across the border.
Wright’s defense attorney, Jeff Senter, claims that his client is innocent of any charges. “Judge Wright is a bright man. He understands documents, he is a judge, and he did the best he could do to comply with the law,” stated Senter.
According to court documents, Tim Wright knowingly sold seven firearms to the same convicted felon on three separate occasions in February of this year. Federal investigators say Wright helped smuggle multiple weapons out of the U.S. Wright is also accused of falsifying information when he purchased firearms from gun stores in Georgetown and Copperas Cove. In the indictment, it says Wright filled out paperwork indicating he was the buyer of the firearms, but he was actually buying the firearms on behalf of another person.
If convicted, Wright faces up to 10 years of imprisonment on each firearm charge and up to five years of imprisonment on each count alleging false statements to a government agent.
Police Close Investigation Against 'King of Instagram' Dan Bilzerian
In December, the 'King of Instagram' was in trouble. The poker player and playboy was sued by Miami-based model Vanessa Castano, who claimed that he had kicked her in the face at a trendy South Beach club. In the lawsuit, Vanessa and her lawyer stated that, " Bilzerian kicked the plaintiff off an elevated platform..." Only a few days later, Bilzerian was arrested in L.A. on felony explosives charges for allegedly detonating a bomb at an unofficial shooting range just outside of Vegas.
But now, it appears that Bilzerian will not face any criminal charges in the incident. A Miami Beach Police Department spokesperson confirms that the investigation into the nightclub incident has been closed. And earlier this month, the explosive charges went away after Bilzerian pleaded no contest to a reduced misdemeanor charge of failing to extinguish a fire. He paid restitution and will film a PSA.
