NEW HAVEN — A Bridgeport man faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal gun charge Tuesday.
Terrance “T-Time” Clark, 24, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer to one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
In a prepared statement, U.S. Attorney John H. Durham said officers with Bridgeport Police Department’s narcotics team arrested Clark April 3 after they found him in possession of crack cocaine packaged for street level distribution as well as a .40-caliber Glock 22 handgun loaded with a high capacity magazine.
Durham said Clark’s criminal history includes felony convictions in state court for possession of a firearm without a permit and possession of narcotics.
Clark’s sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 17, at which time he faces between five and 10 years in prison. He has been detained pending sentencing.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Bridgeport Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jocelyn Courtney Kaoutzanis.
