Bradley’s Federal Gun Charges
Bradley pleaded guilty to a federal charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm July 25, 2012, in U.S. District Court in Fayetteville. He had a stroke that delayed his sentencing.
Bradley spent several months in a federal prison hospital. On April 25, Bradley was sentenced to time served, 13 months, seven days, on the federal charge. He also was fined $5,000 and sentenced to three years of supervised release.
Deputies found two .22-caliber rifles in Bradley’s Elkins home the day he was arrested in connection with the extortion attempt. Bradley was previously convicted of felony theft by deception in 2011.
