In a case that jumped around several jurisdictions before landing in the U.S. Attorney's Office, Clements was slapped with the charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. ...Why he was not immediately charged with such a thing remains unclear, as a similar charge from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor was dismissed several weeks ago.
Via the federal prosecutor:
...on or about Jan. 17, 2013, Clements had possession of a Rossi, Model Garrucha, .22-caliber Derringer, serial number 307228, despite the aforementioned convictions.
This news joins Clements' original federal charge of being a felon in possession of ammunition.
