Self-proclaimed Charleston gang member enters guilty plea on gun charge
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A 29-year-old Charleston man was sentenced after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities say evidence presented in court showed Travis Stefenon Daquan Lawrence was a felon and self-professed member of a street gang.
Authorities say Lawrence was in possession of a stolen pistol with a magazine holding 17 rounds of hollow-point ammunition when he was arrested.
United States District Judge David C. Norton sentenced Lawrence to 84 months, or seven years, in federal prison followed by three years of court-ordered supervision.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Charleston Police Department.
