The interim United States Attorney in New Orleans announced Friday that a Houma man will face charges of having an unregistered rifle with a barrel of less than 16 inches in length.

In a statement from U.S. Attorney Dana Boente’s office, 61-year old Michael J. Hebert is said to have had in his possession a Stag Arms Model Stag-15 rifle, which is a semiautomatic, civilian adaptation of the military M-16 rifle.

If convicted of having an unregistered rifle with a barrel less than 16 inches, Boente’s office says Hebert could get a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
