PRINCE GEORGES COUNTY MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO FILING A FALSE APPLICATION TO PURCHASE A REGULATED FIREARM

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Kevin Dwayne King, of Prince Georges County, Maryland entered a guilty plea to filing a false application to purchase a regulated firearm in the Circuit Court for Howard County. The Honorable Diane Leasure placed Mr. King on 18 months supervised probation before judgment, and ordered him to pay $150 in costs, plus the costs of probation supervision. As an additional condition of probation the defendant was ordered to cooperate with the Maryland State Police Firearms Enforcement Section in determining the whereabouts of certain other firearms which had been registered to him. One of those weapons had previously been recovered in Dallas, Texas as a result of a police investigation into a gangland drive-by shooting.

This case was investigated by the Firearms Enforcement Section of the Maryland State Police and was prosecuted by the Firearms Trafficking Unit of the Office of the Attorney General.
