Print Article

MADISON — A Beloit man was sentenced in federal court Wednesday to three years in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Kenneth Greene, 25, also is to serve three years of supervised release once his prison sentence in completed, according to John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin. Greene pleaded guilty to this charge on Nov. 3, 2015.

Greene was charged with distributing crack cocaine on four occasions in December 2014, and possessing three different firearms from December 2014 to January 2015. Greene pleaded guilty to possessing one of the firearms – an AK-47 style weapon that he sold to an undercover officer on Dec. 18, 2015.

The charges against Greene were the result of an investigation conducted by G‑ROC, a task force formed through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Streets Violent Crime Initiative. Its members include the FBI; Rock County Sheriff’s Office; Rock County District Attorney’s Office; Beloit Police Department; and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
