Greenbrier County man denied bond in Federal firearms case

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of West Virginia

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Acting United States Attorney Carol Casto announced that a Greenbrier County man charged with federal gun crimes was denied bond today. United States Magistrate Judge Dwayne L. Tinsley ordered that Ronald Ray McMillion, 64, of Renick, remain in custody following a hearing in federal court in Charleston.

McMillion was indicted by a federal grand jury in Beckley on February 23, 2016. The indictment alleges that McMillion possessed three firearms on April 21, 2014, and one firearm on April 25, 2014, at his residence in Renick, all while being prohibited from possessing firearms because he is a convicted felon and because he is an unlawful user of a controlled substance.

McMillion’s trial is scheduled for March 28, 2016, in Beckley before United States District Judge Irene C. Berger.

The United States Attorney’s Office advises that an indictment is merely an allegation of criminal behavior and not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
