Rochester Felon Admits to Firearm Violation
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News)- A convicted felon from Rochester had pleaded guilty to illegal possession of a firearm.
Court documents accuse 49-year-old Marcus Jackson of possessing a Taurus G2C 9MM pistol that was discovered during a Rochester Police Department search of his home on May 25. U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Lugar said Jackson initially told officers there were no firearms in the home, but admitted to having the weapon as police searched the kitchen of his residence.
Court records indicate Jackson has been convicted of three felony level crimes in Olmsted, Ramsey and Hennepin Counties. Those convictions prevent him from possessing a firearm.
Jackson entered the guilty plea Tuesday in Minneapolis. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.
