Defendant Indicted On Prohibited Possession Of Firearms And Ammunition

April 26, 2013

Ted McCall Snow of Wilmer, Alabama, has been indicted on charges of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, and possession of a stolen firearm. The Indictment charges that Snow was previously convicted of eleven cases of burglary, receiving stolen property and theft in Mobile County Circuit Court between 1989 and 2007. By virtue of these convictions, and Snow’s resulting status as a convicted felon he is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition. Snow is alleged to have possessed three types of ammunition on March 5, 2013, and three stolen firearms on March 8, 2013.

Possession of a firearm or ammunition by a previously convicted felon is a violation of Title 18, United States Code Section 922(g)(1); and, possession of a stolen firearm is a violation of Title 18, United States Code Section 922(j). The statutory maximum penalty provided by law for each charge is 10 years imprisonment. If however, the Defendant has three prior convictions for crimes of violence or serious drug offenses, the penalty provided by law on the felon in possession charge is a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years to a maximum of life imprisonment.

As in all criminal cases, the Indictment returned by the Grand Jury is only a charge and the Defendant is presumed innocent.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives and Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and the Mobile Police Department. The case will be prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Alabama.
