Sullivan Co. Felon Indicted on Firearms Charge
A federal grand jury indicted a Sullivan County man this week for illegally possessing firearms as a convicted felon.
U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett says Mark Dudley faces up to a decade in prison.
Dudley's extensive criminal history includes thirteen prior felony convictions, including convictions for theft, illegal possession of a gun, forgery, and burglary in Sullivan County and Vigo County.
The prosecution comes as part of the U.S. Attorney's Violent Crime Initiative, and is the result of a joint investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Sullivan County law enforcement.
