BOISE — Kyle Batt, 27, faces up to 10 years in federal prison for unlawful possession of a firearm, and up to five years in prison for possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number.
The federal charges stemmed from an Oct. 23 incident when Batt allegedly shot two Canyon County sheriff's deputies - Brad Childers and Mike Roth - injuring them as they approached his home. Canyon County and Caldwell SWAT officers say they found a semiautomatic pistol on Batt when he was tracked down hiding in a garage in Caldwell on Oct. 24. Batt shot himself in the face when the SWAT officers approached him.
Previously convicted of a felony in Boise County, Batt is not allowed to own firearms.
Batt could also have to serve up to three years of supervised release and pay a fine of up to $250,000 for each federal charge. He agreed to forfeit the pistol, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for Idaho.
His sentencing is set for Aug. 13 at the federal courthouse in Boise.
