    Straw purchaser with 4 felony gun charges will not get jail time




    A Chicago-area woman arrested last year for her role in illegally selling guns to prohibited buyers, some with gang affiliations, was sentenced to probation and community service last week.

    Simone Mousheh, 23, of the Chicago suburb of Mount Prospect, will have to complete 15 days of community service in the Cook County Sheriff’s Work Alternative Program and 12 months probation after pleading guilty to illegal transfer of firearms last week, as reported by the Daily Herald.

    Mousheh was arrested last September and charged with four felonies after an investigation by the Chicago Police Firearm Investigation Team concluded she had bought handguns through the benefit of her state-issued Firearms Owners Identification card and then illegally resold them.

    One gun, a Glock 23 Mousheh later reported as stolen, was recovered by police from a juvenile offender on the West Side.

    Another Glock, a Model 22, was sold to Jayson Barber nine days after she bought it. Mousheh knew at the time that Barber was on probation for domestic battery, and did not have a FOID card which is needed to possess a handgun in Illinois.

    Police later determined Barber had gang ties. The Glock was the second gun she sold to Barber.

    Over a six-month period, Mousheh purchased four Glocks and put a $1,000 deposit on an FN 5.7 pistol. Police were only able to recover the Glock from Barber as well as one other gun and a box of 5.7x28mm ammunition from her home.

    “Mousheh placed three semi-automatic firearms on the street, and was in possession of ammunition that is capable of piercing a bullet proof vest,” noted Chicago police at the time of her arrest.

    While she was charged with two counts of illegal transfer of Firearms and two counts of selling a firearm without a valid FOID, officials noted at the time she was unlikely to serve jail time despite the four felony charges, though she would likely see “permanent revocation of her FOID card.”

    Mousheh was free on a $250,000 bond pending her court appearance last week.

    So, Illinois isn't fully prosecuting lawbreakers, yet they want more laws - which they probably won't fully enforce, either. Makes sense.

    You guys are missing the point. She's now a snitch for the ATFE; that's the reason for the light sentence.

    A couple of guys in these parts who sold long guns at shows and flea markets were arrested for selling firearms without a license and for receiving and selling stolen property. The one guy was arrested at a major western PA gun show a number of years ago. FOUR months later, he's back at the same gun show as an FFL licensee.

    Now what person gets an FFL that fast, from date of application? That's right, no one. But the ATFE greased the skids for this guy's paperwork.

    I got a worse punishment than that for having a six pack underage.

    16 hours of community service
    12 months probation
    $200 fine

    And they wonder why the issue doesn't get better................or do they.
