MONROE, La. (AP) - Federal authorities say a Downsville man has pleaded guilty in Monroe to weapons charges.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley, in a Wednesday news release, identified the man as 44-year-old William David Futch. He pleaded guilty Tuesday to possessing firearms, ammunition and an unregistered silencer after having been previously convicted of a felony.

Authorities said Futch was arrested after Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call in 2014 about a man firing shots at his home. Futch was found in possession of a shotgun, handguns and rifles, as well as ammunition and a silencer.

Futch faces up to 10 years in prison. Sentencing was set for June 20.
