Man off to jail after violating gun order

(Continued)

An officer stopped the car, and King admitted that his guns were in the trunk. Police found four handguns, a shotgun and a rifle, Sears told the judge.

Defense lawyer James McCall urged Mori to impose only the minimum mandatory sentence, noting King’s military background, which Mori called “very impressive.”

Mori agreed to impose the minimum on each count and then ordered that they be served concurrently, or at the same time.

“I have little, actually, no discretion,” the judge said.

King has credit for about 60 days he spent in custody before being released on bail but will receive no other credit, such as so-called “good time,” and cannot seek parole.
