Felon with 81 Firearms Admits His Guilt

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man from Belle who wasn't supposed to have any guns, has pleaded guilty to having 81 in his possession.

Dorsey Woolwine Jr. pleaded guilty in Federal Court Thursday to being a felon in possession of firearms.

In March of 2012 police searched Woolwine's home and property and seized 29 firearms including a sawed-off shotgun.

A year later another search warrant was executed and that time meth, scales, cash, and 52 additional firearms were found.

Woolwine had previously been convicted for unlawful wounding. The conviction meant he is not allowed to have any firearms.

Woolwine faces up to 10 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on August 5.
