Toledo man charged with possessing a firearm after prior felony and domestic violence convictions

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

Terrell Moses, 36, of Toledo, Ohio was indicted on one count of felon in possession of a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm by a person with a prior misdemeanor of domestic violence conviction.

On January 20, 2020, Moses allegedly possessed a Glock, Model 17, nine caliber semi-automatic pistol after previously being convicted of burglary in the Lucas County Common Pleas Court and misdemeanor domestic violence in the Toledo Municipal Court.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal records, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Deyana Unis and Matthew Simko.
