He pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of firearms, one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, and one count of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Police say Carter and Irwin Wade, stole the firearms from the home of Wade's aunt and uncle. He was found in possession of marijuana and one of the stolen handguns the next day.

Chief Judge Linda R. Reade sentenced Carter of 195 months' imprisonment for the charges.
