West Virginia man gets probation in gun case

June 03, 2006

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Delray, W.Va., man was sentenced earlier this week to serve two years of probation after pleading guilty to a charge related to the manufacture of a sawed-off shotgun.

Joseph V. Roberts, 24, also was ordered to pay a $500 fine.

On March 14, Roberts pleaded guilty to a count of information charging that he failed to report the manufacture of the gun. He was not directly involved in the making of the gun, but concealed knowledge of it, according to a press release from the Office of the U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of West Virginia.

Delray is a small town in Hampshire County, about an hour southwest of Martinsburg.

The case was investigated by West Virginia State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
