Sequim resident Byron C. Washburn, 33, was sentenced to 18 months in a state prison on Feb. 14 after he pleaded guilty in Clallam County Superior Court to two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm in the first degree.
On Nov. 27, 2017 members of the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team (OPNET) served a search warrant at Washburn’s residence located on the 700 block of River Road in Sequim. Inside the residence, investigators discovered two firearms.
Washburn had previously convicted for residential burglary and attempted residential burglary in April 2016, making him a convicted felon, court papers said.
After serving his prison sentence, Washburn will be supervised by the Washington State Department of Corrections for 18 more months, OPNET officials said.
Washburn has also been ordered to pay $800 in fines to offset court and law enforcement expenses.
He was being held Feb. 18 at the Washington Corrections Center near Shelton.
