MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) – An Onalaska man was sentenced today, August 7, to 69 months for possessing a firearm as a felon.

Curtis Green, 39, was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to 57 months in federal prison for possessing a firearm as a felon, and an additional 12 months for revocation of his federal supervised release. This prison term will be followed by two years of supervised release.

This investigation stems from a shooting that occurred in West Salem on October 26, 2019. Green was identified as a suspect in that shooting. Officers executed a search warrant at Green’s residence on October 31, 2019, where they located a firearm and ammunition consistent with that used in the shooting. Green is facing state charges for his alleged participation in the shooting.

Green was serving a term of supervised release in connection to a 2006 federal conviction for the theft of 38 firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer. Judge Peterson revoked that supervision and sentenced Green to the additional 12 months.

The charge against Green was the result of an investigation conducted by the West Salem Police Department, La Crosse County Sheriff’s Department, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Taylor L. Kraus.
