WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Jalin Tyref Mcarn, of Charleston, West Virginia, has admitted to a firearms charge, United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld announced.

Mcarn, 27, pleaded guilty today to one count of “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.” Mcarn, a person prohibited from having firearms because of a prior conviction, admitted to having a semi-automatic pistol in June 2021 in Tyler County.

Mcarn faces up to 10 years of incarceration and fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Clayton J. Reid is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Sistersville Police Department investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. Mazzone presided.
