Marion County man admits to firearms charge | Local News
CLARKSBURG – A Fairmont man was admitted on Tuesday in the US District Court in Clarksburg on a firearms charge.
Terrance Cecil Clark, 27, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a gun, acting US attorney Randolph J. Bernard said.
Clark, banned from having a firearm based on previous convictions, admitted having a 9-millimeter pistol in Marion County in May 2020. He appeared before US judge Michael John Aloi on Tuesday.
Clark faces a prison sentence of up to 10 years and a fine of up to $ 250,000. According to the federal condemnation guidelines, the penalty actually imposed depends on the seriousness of the offense and, if applicable, on the previous history of the accused.
US Assistant Attorney Sarah E. Wagner is pursuing the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated.
