Georgia man sentenced to prison for selling guns to convicted felon

  • Follow Crime & courts

A Georgia man and member of the Ku Klux Klan has been sentenced to a prison term in Abingdon, Va.

Michael Lee Fullmore, 30, of Claxton, Ga., was sentenced on Dec. 19 to serve 52 months in prison for providing firearms to a convicted felon.

FBI agents based in Augusta and Statesboro worked on the case with FBI agents in Virginia, Augusta Supervisory Senior Resident Agent Jim Harrison wrote in an e-mail Monday.

According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Abingdon, Va., Fullmore took steps to establish a more violent and radical sub-group of the KKK to commit violent crimes against minorities. Fullmore thought this organization could be funded by selling guns to convicted felons and militia groups.

Federal agents arrested Fullmore after learning in June that he wanted to fire-bomb a Catholic church in the Claxton area because of its ties to the Hispanic community.
