Convicted Felon Could Face Fed Charges After Gun Buy Attempt
Lying about having a felony on federal background check won't make that felony go away for a guy trying to buy a gun in La Crosse. Police say federal charges may be on the way for Jamale Wilson, a 25 year-old who apparently tried to buy a gun at a store in La Crosse on Friday. They say he picked out a .380 to buy, paid the 10 bucks for the background check and then left in a huff when the bad news came back about his criminal background. Though Wilson answered "no" to the felony question on the form, he was convicted of felony reckless endangerment just four years ago in La Crosse.
