In court Monday, Chief Criminal Prosecutor Eric Ohme alleged that Dawley “willfully violated” the order by calling his roommate from jail the same day.
Dawley asked the roommate to transfer ownership of two of the firearms to the roommate and take another firearm and claim it was his, Ohme said.

The next day, Dawley called and asked the roommate if he accomplished the task, but the roommate said he was too busy.
Ohme explained that he asked Dawley’s attorney, Jason Lantz, to help secure the firearms, which he did. Ohme said Dawley was “caught red handed” and made clear plans to thwart the order.
Former Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page and the former nuclear safety watchdog Linda Keen agree the public service needs major, quick reform.
Page was the independent budget officer from 2008 to 2013 and worked in the federal civil service for 27 years in various departments. Too many people are being appointed to powerful positions with little or no experience in a department, he said.
