PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - A Parkersburg man with a previous conviction could go to prison for 10 years after he was caught with a rifle earlier this year.

Codi Douglas, 26, of Parkersburg, pleaded guilty to a federal gun charge Tuesday.

A news release from the Acting U.S. Attorney’s Office said Douglas is not allowed to own a gun because of a previous malicious assault conviction.

He was caught with an AR-15 during a traffic stop in January.

The malicious assault charge stemmed from a shooting in September 2015.

He faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on January 5, 2022.
