Campbell County Man Pleads Guilty to Illegal Possession of a Firearm

COVINGTON, Ky. – A Bellevue, Ky., man, Perrin George March V, 27, pleaded guilty on Tuesday, before U.S. District Judge David Bunning, to illegal possession of a firearm.

According to March’s plea agreement, law enforcement executed a federal search warrant at his residence and found a fully loaded AK-47 pistol, ammunition, and large capacity magazines.  March admitted that he knew he was currently subject to a domestic violence order and was prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition.                          

March was indicted in May 2022.

Carlton S. Shier, IV, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; and Jodi Cohen, Special Agent in Charge, Louisville Field Office, jointly announced the guilty plea.

The investigation was conducted by the FBI.  The United States was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Emily Greenfield.

March is scheduled to be sentenced on November 8, 2022. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. However, any sentence will be imposed by the Court, after its consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal sentencing statutes.
