Richard G. Frohling, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on May 3, 2022, a federal grand jury issued an indictment against Mitchell C. Burton, a/k/a “Cosby M. Burton,” (age: 32) of Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Burton, a convicted felon, possessed nine firearms in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(1) and 924(a)(2). 

If convicted of possessing the firearms he faces up to ten years’ imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. 

This case was investigated by the Oshkosh Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
