Junior Joseph found guilty to illegally export guns to Haiti
Junior Joseph was found guilty by a Fort Lauderdale federal jury on Friday of conspiring to illegally export guns and ammunition to Haiti.
Junior Joseph a former U.S. Marine sergeant and Orlando gun shop owner (Global Dynasty Corps), is set to be sentenced on April 12.
He faces up to 20 years in jail, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.
The charges included providing false statements about the sale of a 9 mm Glock 17 pistol that was smuggled to Haiti as part of the illegal weapons stash but was later stolen.
The Joseph brothers were both accused of filling a truck with high-powered single and double-barrel 12 gauge shotguns and assault rifles, and shipping it aboard a Monarch Shipping Lines freighter from Palm Beach to Haiti with an Haitian senator in August 2016.
“They all are involved in making sure this shipment of guns gets to Haiti,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Adrienne Rabinowitz said in closing arguments. “
