A Winamac man has pleaded guilty to federal charges in U.S District Court.
Forty-nine-year-old Paul Minix was arrested on July 25 and taken to the Pulaski County Jail on an active ATF warrant. As a result of an investigation by the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Division, a grand jury indicted Minix on two counts of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. He allegedly committed the offense on Feb. 21.
