BERKELEY COUNTY MAN ADMITS TO FEDERAL FIREARMS CHARGE

A Berkeley County man has admitted to a federal firearms charge… 39 year old William Monroe of Martinsburg, pled guilty to one count of “Unlawful Possession of Firearm.” Monroe, having been previously convicted of a felony, admitted to having a 9mm pistol and a .380 caliber pistol in August 2017 in Berkeley County. When he is sentenced, Monroe now faces up to 10 years in federal prison, and a fine of up to $250,000. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods… the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts.
