MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Hagerstown man was resentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Martinsburg by Judge Irene M. Keeley, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II.

Robert John Summerville III, 31, was resentenced to 10 years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release, according to the release.

Summerville entered a guilty plea on March 22, 2012, to one count of possession of a firearm on Nov. 7, 2010, in Jefferson County after having previously been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, according to the release.

Summerville was convicted on April 17, 2009, of burglary in Texas; on Feb. 8, 2005, of second-degree assault in Allegany County, Md.; and on June 15, 2004, of resisting arrest in Washington County, the release states.

On July 5, 2012, Summerville was sentenced to 21 years and eight months in prison, but his case was remanded by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals for recalculation of his criminal history as his prior convictions did not qualify him for the federal Armed Career Criminal Act.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul T. Camilletti, and was investigated by West Virginia State Police, Shepherdstown (W.Va.) Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
