Felon in possession of loaded black powder rifle

(Stillwater, Okla.) -- An ex-convict from Cushing was charged today with being a felon in possession of a loaded black powder rifle, along with hunting offenses investigated by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife.

Brownie S. Holland, 65, was scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon on a four-count charge including hunting with the aid of a vehicle, shooting from a public roadway, and hunting without permission of a landowner, all on Oct. 28.

Holland is alleged to have used a gray Dodge pickup to follow and shoot a whitetail deer from the vehicle, to have discharged a firearm while on a public roadway one-half mile west of Stiles and Grandstaff Roads, and to have hunted on or about property without the landowner's permission.

According to state Department of Corrections records, Holland served a year in prison between April 1983 and April 1984 for grand larceny in Kay County in 1980.

If convicted of possessing a firearm after a felony conviction, Holland could be given a 10-year prison term.

If convicted of a misdemeanor count of hunting with the aid of a motor driven vehicle, Holland could be incarcerated for an additional one year.

If convicted of misdemeanor counts of shooting from a public roadway and hunting without a landowner's permission, Holland could be given an additional 60 days of incarceration.
