MILWAUKEE COUNTY
Reservist loses plea to stay out of prison
A Wisconsin man convicted in federal court of transferring a machine gun has been denied a request to stay out of prison while he fights the conviction.

Buy a link hereDavid R. Olofson, 36, of Berlin, who remains a member of the Army Reserve, was convicted by a jury in January and sentenced last month to 30 months in prison.

Olofson's attorney argued that the gun Olofson loaned to another man malfunctioned when it fired multiple rounds and Olofson didn't know it would do that.

Olofson, whose case has received widespread attention after coverage on the Lou Dobbs show on CNN, filed an appeal with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and also asked that he be kept out of prison until that appeal is decided.

In a one-line order this week, a three-judge panel on the 7th Circuit denied Olofson's motion to stay out of prison pending his appeal. Olofson is not in custody and likely won't be called to report to prison until later in summer because of a backlog in getting out-of-custody inmates into federal prison.
