WILMINGTON - United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that in federal court today DANIEL CARL DEEL, 32, of Henderson, North Carolina pled guilty before Senior United States District Judge James C. Fox to Felon in Possession of a Firearm, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 922(g)(1) and 924.
