Acting U. S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced Friday that 25-year-old Treveon T. Carter was sentenced to 6 years and 2 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, for illegal possession of a firearm.
On Jan. 24, 2019, law enforcement agents searched Carter’s home and found marijuana, oxycodone, 20 containers of suspected THC, a digital scale and packaging material, cash, and a loaded firearm. Carter admitted to agents that the loaded firearm and drug evidence belonged to him.
Carter has a prior felony conviction for possession with intent to distribute narcotics in 2017 and knew that it was illegal for him to possess a firearm.
