A former school secretaryÂ who is an illegal alien was arrested on gun charges
A former Pratt school secretary was indicted Tuesday on federal firearms charges, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.
Claudia Rodriguez-Oviedo, 33, a citizen of Mexico, was indicted on two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm by an alien illegally in the United States. The indictment alleges that on Nov. 8, 2017, she possessed a Remington handgun and 35 rounds of ammunition.
Rodriguez-Oviedo currently is serving a 12-month sentence after she was previously convicted on charges of placing a fake bomb threat to a school, USD 382 in Pratt. She was employees at Southwest Elementary School at the time and reportedly said she made the bomb threat to â€œsee what it felt like.â€
If convicted, she faces a sentence of up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count. Immigration and Customs Enforcementâ€™s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) investigated.
Federal Law already forbids illegal aliens from owning firearms.
