Man, 19, found guilty of probation violation

July 05, 2008|By From staff reports

A Gwynn Oak man previously convicted of drug and firearm offenses was found guilty Wednesday of violating his probation and was sentenced by a Baltimore Circuit Court judge to three years in jail.

Quentin Benjamin Adams, 19, also faced a charge of failing to comply with the terms of the Gun Registry Act. But that charge was dropped after the probation violation.

Adams pleaded guilty in February to illegal drug and firearm possession and was sentenced to three months in jail. He was required to register as a gun offender under a new law which took effect this year. Prosecutors allege that Adams did not register.

The city ordinance requires gun offenders to register with the Police Department immediately upon sentencing and/or release from imprisonment and every six months thereafter for three years.
