ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA – Jenny Lynn Wood, of Beverly, West Virginia, has admitted to a firearms charge, United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld announced.

Wood, 31, pleaded guilty today to one count of “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.” Wood, a person prohibited from having a firearm, admitted to having two revolvers in July 2019 in Barbour County.

Wood faces up to 10 years of incarceration and a 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 Brandon S. Flower is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi presided.
