CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Christopher Neal Boram, II, of Clarksburg, West Virginia, has admitted to unlawfully possessing a firearm, United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld announced.

Boram, 35, pleaded guilty this week to one count of “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.” Boram was previously convicted of “Delivery of a Controlled Substance” in March 2019 in Harrison County Circuit Court. As a result of that conviction, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.  

Boram faces up to 10 years incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah E. Wagner is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi presided.
