A convicted felon who was found in possession of a firearm and ammunition has taken a deal with the federal government.

Vincent John Meno pled guilty to felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, admitting to having a .38 caliber pistol and six bullet rounds on his person when police responded to a criminal mischief complaint at the Lucky Land Gameroom in Dededo on Sept. 2, 2017.

According to court documents, Meno not only faces sanctions for violating the terms of his supervised release but an additional two years re-imprisonment for all or part of the term of supervised release and is not eligible for credit for time served while on post-release supervision.

But as part of the plea deal, the federal government has agreed to recommend no jail time and instead ask for three years supervised release.

Meno’s request to be released was denied and a sentencing hearing has not been set.
