The Associated Press reports, Patrick Germain of Evanston entered the plea this week in federal court in Chicago. He faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. He's due to be sentenced Jan. 29 2019.

A plea agreement says Germain purchased 16 handguns, five shotguns, a rifle and ammunition from Illinois dealers in June 2016. It says Germain placed the guns and ammunition in a plywood container that he then hid inside a cargo van. The van then was delivered to a shipping company in Miami but law enforcement seized it before it could be transported to Haiti.
