MoreLaw Legal News For Charleston

On September 15, 2021, a law enforcement officer encountered Todd Jeffery Ullum, age 32, from Myaysel, West Virginia, at the Clay-Maysel GoMart with a handgun in the back of his pants. When Ullum saw the officer, he attempted to flee in a vehicle. The officer ordered Ullum to stop and recovered the handgun, a loaded 9mm Short Hungarian pistol, as well as a loaded Remington 597 .22-caliber Magnum rifle from the vehicle.

Federal law prohibits a person with a prior felony conviction from possessing a firearm or ammunition. Ullum was prohibited from possessing a firearm because of his felony conviction for grand larceny in Kanawha County Circuit Court on May 7, 2015.

United States Attorney Will Thompson made the announcement and commended the investigative work of the Clay County Sheriff’s Department.

Senior United States District Judge David A. Faber presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney R. Gregory McVey is prosecuting the case.

Outcome: Defendant pled guilty and faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, up to three years of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.
