The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Richard S. Hartunian, Troy Police Chief John F. Tedesco, and Delano A. Reid, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) New York Field Division.
Clark is charged with possessing a loaded Ruger .357 caliber revolver. The charges in the indictment are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
If convicted, Clark faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, and a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of up to 3 years.
