Florida Man, 5-Time Convicted Felon Pleads Guilty to Firearm Offense

Release Date: May 31, 2024

ORLANDO, Fla. — A Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Orlando investigation has led to the guilty plea of a five-time convicted felon for illegal possession of a firearm.

Reginald Dugger Jr., 42, of Orlando, has pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

According to the plea agreement, on Feb. 29, agents from HSI Orlando executed a federal search warrant at Dugger’s residence. During the search, agents discovered a currency counter, drugs and two loaded firearms in plain view and accessible to Dugger. At the time of the offense, Dugger had previously been convicted of several felony offenses. As such, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.

This case was investigated by HSI Orlando and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Noah P. Dorman.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: Fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
