Maryland Resident Re-Sentenced on Firearms Charge

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA - A 31-year old Hagerstown, Maryland, resident was resentenced on April 15, 2013, in United States District Court in Martinsburg by Judge Irene M. Keeley.

United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that:

ROBERT JOHN SUMMERVILLE, III, was resentenced to 120 months imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release. SUMMERVILLE entered a plea of guilty on March 22, 2012, to one count of possession of a firearm on November 7, 2010, in Jefferson County, after having previously been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year. SUMMERVILLE was convicted on April 17, 2009, of burglary in Tarrant County, Texas; on February 8, 2005, of assault in the second degree in the Circuit Court of Allegheny County, Maryland; and, on June 15, 2004, of resisting arrest in the Circuit Court of Washington County, Maryland.

On July 5, 2012, SUMMERVILLE was sentenced to 262 months imprisonment, but case was remanded by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals for recalculation of SUMMERVILLE’s criminal history as his prior convictions did not make him an Armed Career Criminal.
