BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A western North Dakota man accused of having assault-type guns in his possession has pleaded guilty to an illegal weapons charge.

Ronnie Nikodym, of Bismarck, is charged in federal court with possession and manufacture of illegal firearms. Authorities say he had six machine guns in his possession and sold two of the guns in Dickinson.

Nikodym pleaded guilty to the possession charge, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. In exchange for the plea, the manufacture charge would be dropped.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 18 in Bismarck.
