MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Jordan Teal Burg, of Martinsburg, West Virginia, has admitted to a firearms charge, United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld announced.

Burg, 33, pleaded guilty today to one count of “Aiding and Abetting False Statement During Purchase of a Firearm.” Burg admitted to working with others to illegally purchase three pistols from a licensed firearms dealer in April 2021 in Jefferson County.

Burg 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.

Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie L. Lehman, also with the Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The ATF and the Easter Panhandle Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Trumble presided.
