The latest reports about the America's Got Talent host's estranged husband are claiming federal prosecutors are now evaluating evidence gathered at Belafonte's home to judge whether he ought to be prosecuted on federal weapons charges, according to TMZ.
This past Friday night, ATF agents raided his Hollywood Hills home. The law enforcement officials were investigating to determine if Belafonte was in possession of a gun or ammo. Considering he was convicted of domestic violence back in 2003, he is not allowed to be in possession of either.
While the ATF agents did not discover a gun, they did find a bullet that was out of the casing and an empty shell casing. However, the items do not meet the criteria as "ammunition" because they are not in themselves projectiles.
In the event that Stephen Belafonte is convicted of illegal possession of a firearm, he would be facing up to 10 years in prison.
