Man pleads guilty to federal firearms charge

A 35-year-old Wichita man has pleaded guilty to a federal firearms charge after police responding to a domestic violence report saw him putting a gun to his girlfriend’s head.

Teagan C. Gulley pleaded guilty Monday to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm following a felony conviction. In his plea, he admitted that Wichita police officers saw him pointing a gun at his girlfriend. Gulley was arrested following the domestic violence incident and police seized a .45-caliber handgun.

Because he was a convicted felon at the time, he was prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 9. He is expected to receive a sentence of 77 months in federal prison, according to a news release issued by U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom. Both parties have agreed to the sentence, the news release said.

The Wichita Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Treaster were praised by Grissom for their work on the case.
