A federal jury has convicted a Tulsa gun dealer accused
of trying to buy machine guns.
William Hugh Fleming, owner of Fleming Firearms Inc., was
convicted Friday on charges of conspiracy and unlawful registration
of machine guns and silencers.
Jurors were deadlocked on three charges of conspiring to
buy grenade launchers.
Sentencing will be in July. Fleming is free on bond.
Fleming was accused of conspiring with Hunter Mixon, former
police chief in Seminole, and Stephen Scribner, a reserve
police officer in Drumright, to buy six machine guns from
a Texas collector.
