Former N.C. Deputy Pleads Guilty In Blackwater Gun Deal

November 15, 2011  | 

A former deputy with the Camden County (N.C.) Sheriff's Office used his agency as a front to purchase automatic weapons for the military contractor formerly known as Blackwater.

Jonathan Worthington, 45, pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court. He pleaded guilty to using sheriff's letterhead in spring 2005 to buy 17 AK-47s from an import company known as Century International Arms and 17 M4s from Bushmaster, reports The Virginian-Pilot.

As a private firearms dealer, Blackwater could not possess more than two fully automatic weapons.
