PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a 40-year-old ex-convict from northern New York has pleaded guilty to illegally possessing a handgun and more than 1,000 steel-penetrating bullets.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Albany announced Monday that Clayton Brothers of the St. Lawrence County town of Russell admitted to having a Sig Sauer pistol and more than 1,000 rounds of 5.56 mm-caliber steel-penetrating ammunition at his home in April 2014.

Brothers is prohibited from possessing guns and ammo because of a prior felony conviction.

Brothers pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Plattsburgh. He faces up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and up to three years of post-prison supervision when he’s sentenced June 25.

The investigation involved U.S. Homeland Security, state police and the state corrections department.
