Brandon Royce Clark Sentenced To 100 Months For Possession Of Ammunition

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. - Brandon Royce Clark, 23, of Morristown, Tenn., was sentenced in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Greeneville, Honorable R. Leon Jordan, U.S. District Judge, presiding, to serve 100 months in prison for the felony offense of possession of ammunition by a previously convicted felon.

Upon his release from prison, Clark will be subject to supervised release under the supervision of the U.S. Probation Office for three years. There is no parole in the federal system.

Clark pleaded guilty in June 2012, to possessing ammunition after having been previously convicted of a felony offense. Federal law prohibits any person, previously convicted of any offense which carries a potential penalty exceeding one year of incarceration, from thereafter possessing a firearm or ammunition

Law enforcement agencies participating in the joint investigation which led to indictment and subsequent conviction of Clark included the Morristown Police Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U. S. Attorney J. Gregory Bowman represented the United States.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a comprehensive national strategy that creates local partnerships with law enforcement agencies to effectively enforce existing gun laws. It provides more options to prosecutors, allowing them to utilize local, state, and federal laws to ensure that criminals who commit gun crimes face tough sentences. PSN gives each federal district the flexibility it needs to focus on individual challenges that a specific community faces.
