Man to plead guilty to firearms charges

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel/May 2, 2003

A self-proclaimed white supremacist suspected of training neo-Nazi teenagers to shoot on his Racine County farm has agreed to plead guilty to two federal firearms charges, court records show.

Michael Kenneth Faust, 35, plans to plead guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number, according to a plea agreement filed in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee. Both charges are felonies. If convicted, Faust faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000 on each count.

In December, federal authorities serving a search warrant found nine firearms, including an AK-47-style assault weapon, at a farm in Franksville where Faust lived with his grandmother.

Faust ran on a white supremacist platform for the Caledonia Town Board in 1990. His previous felony, which occurred shortly after the failed campaign, was attempted first-degree intentional homicide. He served eight years in prison.
