Convicted Felon Pleads Guilty To Firearm Possession
A 40-year-old Greensburg man has pleaded guilty in federal court to two counts of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon.
Clifton Holmes Jr., faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
According to a factual basis of the case filed Wednesday, on April 23 Holmes' probation officer conducted a search of Holmes' vehicle and found a 9mm pistol and .22-caliber long rifle bullets. Under federal law, Holmes was prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition because he had previously been convicted of a felony.
Authorities say Holmes was on state probation at the time he unlawfully possessed the firearm and the ammunition.
