Felon facing firearms offense

Posted

Convicted felons are prohibited from having firearms and the law takes any such violations as a serious matter.

Travis W. Travioli, 48, West Terre Haute, Ind., is facing a series of felony charges alleging firearms violations.

Travioli appeared in Edgar County Circuit Court Dec. 17 and entered a not guilty plea with jury trial demand to a Class X felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, a Class 2 felony unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, three counts of a Class 2 felony aggravated unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon and a Class 3 felony possession of methamphetamine. A pretrial conference was scheduled.

His prior felony conviction in Edgar County was from a 2002 Class 4 felony possession of controlled substance offense, for which he did prison time. A Class X felony is one of the most serious charges in Illinois, next to murder, and conviction requires a mandatory prison sentence.

In addition to the weapons charges, Travioli has unresolved cases involving a Class 2 felony aggravated domestic battery, a Class 3 felony possession of methamphetamine and a Class 4 felony criminal trespass to residence.
