Tulsa woman gets twelve years for being a felon in possession of firearms


A Tulsa woman was sentenced this week in federal court for firearms and drug violations.


U.S. District Judge Gregory K. Frizzell sentenced Brittany Michele Osborn, 33, of Tulsa, to 12 years in prison followed by three years supervised release. The Court recommended Osborn be placed in a facility where she can participate in the Residential Drug Abuse Program.


“Guns and drugs are a dangerous combination. The seriousness of Brittany Osborn’s crimes is reflected in her 12-year-sentence. Gun crimes mean hard time in the federal system,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “I am thankful for the partnership between my prosecutors and our federal, state, tribal, and local law enforcement agencies. Together, we are working to investigate and prosecute drug and gun related crimes in hopes of making our community safer.”


In March, Osborn pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition and for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. In her written plea agreement, Osborn admitted that she possessed firearms and ammunition as well as 30 grams of methamphetamine and paraphernalia.


As a previously convicted felon, Osborn is prohibited from possessing a firearm.


On Dec. 12, 2019, U.S. Marshals located Brittany Osborn on an outstanding warrant. Officers discovered approximately 30 grams of methamphetamine, packaged in several small baggies, as well as numerous digital scales and empty baggies. The following firearms were located in the room:


Umarex,.22 caliber, semi-automatic rifle, with a scope;

Glock, 9 x 19mm caliber, semi-automatic pistol;

Walther .22 caliber, semi-automatic pistol;

Marlin Firearms Co. .22 caliber, semi-automatic rifle; and

More than 100 rounds of ammunition


Osborn was remanded into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service until transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility.


The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. Marshals Service conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shannon Cozzoni prosecuted the case.
