SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) A Shreveport man is facing up to 10 years in federal prison and as much as an $250,000 fine after pleading guilty to possessing .40-caliber ammunition, according to U.S. Attorney David C. Joseph.

Aaron Troquille, 32, of Shreveport, is a convicted felon who pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute marijuana on May 18, 2011 in Caddo Parish. In addition, he has since been convicted of attempted simple burglary, violation of a protective order and most recently, domestic abuse.

Under federal law, felons are not allowed to possess firearms or ammunition.

According to the guilty plea, Shreveport Police responded to a 911 domestic abuse call on April 18, 2018 at Troquille’s residence on Amie Street.  

After speaking with the victim, police officers arrested Troquille and during questioning learned he had .40-caliber ammunition in the house.  The officers conducted a search of the house and recovered the ammunition.

Troquille pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote, and in addition to facing a decade in prison and a quarter-million-dollar fine, he’s also facing three years of supervised release 

He will learn his fate at his sentencing on August 26, 2019.
