Midland - Midland man will serve time in federal prison for owning unregistered silencers.
Steven Prewit, 54, will serve 33 months for the charge.
Last year a search by the ATF and FBI of both Prewit’s home and a ranch near Balmorhea uncovered the silencers as well as a number of fully automatic machine guns and improvised explosive devices.
Prewit plead guilty to having the unregistered silencers. In exchange for his guilty plea, the government agreed to dismiss the charges of owning machine guns and explosive devices.
