FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A 59-year-old Texas man faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine following his conviction on charges he possessed an illegal machine gun.
Benjamin Edward Neuner, known as "Rebel Rider Ben" and from Alvarado in Johnson County," was convicted Tuesday by a federal court jury in Fort Worth.
Federal prosecutors say Neuner converted two rifles into machine guns and delivered them to an undercover FBI agent.
Neuner, identified as a member of the Rebel Riders Motorcycle Club, contended he was entrapped by a rival Bandido motorcycle gang member.
Neuner remains in custody awaiting sentencing set for Aug. 31.
