If Durst is convicted of this federal charge, he could face a maximum of ten years incarceration.

A federal grand jury has indicted Robert Durst on a charge of felon in possession of a firearm, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana announced Friday.

The indictment says he violated the federal gun control act on March 14. On Wednesday Durst was indicted by a state grand jury on similar charges.

If Durst is convicted of this federal charge, he could face a maximum of ten years incarceration in the Bureau of Prisons as well as a fine of $250,000.

Durst is currently being held in Louisiana without bail, following his arrest in New Orleans last month. He has also been charged in Los Angeles for the 2000 death of Susan Berman.
