SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – A man accused of buying guns to give to serial killer Todd Kohlhepp pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday.

Dustan Lawson entered the courtroom just six months after he was charged with dozens of firearms charges.

The charges included making a false statement to purchase a firearm, selling a firearm to a felon, violations of the National Firearm Act and making a false statement to possess a firearm suppressor.

Lawson admitted to buying the guns at places like Academy Sports in Greenville and then he would tell the seller they were for himself. 

According to Lawson, he would then transfer the gun to Todd Kohlhepp, who’s currently serving a life sentence for several murders.

Lawson said he knew Kohlhepp was a sex offender and a felon when he gave him the guns.

In fact, 29 guns found on Kohlhepp’s property the day Kala Brown was found came from Lawson.

Lawson could face up to 360 years in prison.

Kohlhepp is spending life in prison for seven murders, including the Superbike Motorsport killings in 2003.

Family members of Kohlhepp’s victims believe Lawson should face a strict punishment and said they want the judge to give him the maximum sentence.

The judge did not give a sentencing date, but said it could be 90 days or more.

The judge also said Lawson could be held accountable for Kohlhepp’s actions.
