United States Attorney David C. Joseph announced that Jeffrey Dale Clark Jr., 36, of Boyce, Louisiana, pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Dee D. Drell for possessing a revolver.
During a parolee visit with Clark at his home on May 29, 2018, Louisiana State Probation and Parole officers found that Clark was in possession of a ROHM, Model RG10, .22-caliber revolver.
Clark was in the yard when the officers arrived and he began walking in the opposite direction. When he was asked to turn around, they observed him patting his pockets and asked if he had a weapon, at which time he produced a knife. The officers then searched Clark and found revolver in the waistband of his pants.
Clark is convicted felon of various crimes including simple burglary in 2002, theft in 2002, forgery in 2003, and possession of methamphetamine in 2013, all in Beauregard Parish.
Under federal law, a felon is not allowed to possess firearms and ammunition.
Clark faces up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
The court set the sentencing date for August 20, 2019.
