The arrest of Erika Kulp represents the conclusion of a joint investigation by the Delaware County Criminal Investigation Division and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), said a press release from the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office.

Kulp is accused of the illegal purchase and transfer of two handguns to an individual not permitted to possess firearms. She is also charged with tampering with public records and criminal conspiracy, all third-degree felonies. If convicted, Kulp faces a five-year minimum mandatory sentence under the Brad Fox Law, the release said.

The Brad Fox law, which went into effect in 2013, was named for a slain police officer in Montgomery County and stiffened penalties for those who buy guns for felons.

According to court records, Kulp, who waived her preliminary hearing, is free after posting 10 percent of her $50,000 bail.
