Romero had been prohibited to have guns after being convicted of multiple felonies.
If convicted, he faces 10 years in prison. However, if the court rules he’s a habitual violent offender, he faces a mandatory 15 years and could face up to life in prison. He’s also facing a possible life sentence without the possibility of parole for Officer Benner’s murder.
Romero was arrested on May 26 on state charges but will be transferred into federal custody.
