Wessington Springs man pleads guilty to firearm charge


Sioux Falls, S.D. (KELO-AM) - A Wessington Springs man has pled guilty to Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person.  Fifty-three year old Jonathan Tyrrell appeared before U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange earlier this week.

Maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 3 years of supervised release and an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation. Restitution may also be imposed, including a $100 assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

The charge stems from an incident wherein Tyrrell, on or about the 15th day of December 2011, was stopped by the Jerauld County Sheriff. Methamphetamine, marihuana, and four firearms were found in his vehicle. Tyrrell tested positive for use of controlled substances.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn N. Rich. Tyrrell was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending sentencing, which has been set for May 2.
