Firearms trial set for August

A Hazard man is set to go on trial in August on federal charges.

Peter Cassinelli was indicted earlier this year on charges of illegally possessing two firearms.

In July of last year officers from the Hazard Police Department served a search warrant at Cassinelli's home on Eversole Street where they found approximately 40 assault rifles.

The rifles were allegedly not registered to him.

One was labeled as a machine gun.

He also faces state charges.
