Stoughton man sentenced for illegally receiving firearms | Crime
A Stoughton man was sentenced Tuesday for unlawfully receiving firearms, according to a state Department of Justice release.
Weston Hoare-Baltes, 20, was sentenced to 30 months in prison followed by three years is supervised release. Hoare-Baltes pleaded guilty to the charge on Oct. 3.
Hoare-Baltes was charged with a felony armed robbery in Dane County for his role in the burglary of Grandpa’s Gun Shop in May 2010, according to the release. He was a juvenile at the time and was offered a deferred prosecution agreement.
Hoare-Baltes failed to abide by the terms of the agreement, and continued to commit crimes, officials said. As a result, he was still under felony information for that offense, as well as a burglary in Rock County in May 2013, when he stole three firearms from his grandmother’s house and sold them.
