Williamson County Man Pleads Guilty to Firearm and Cocaine Offenses
MARION -- James D. Gunn, 34, of Marion, pled guilty today to two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
Authorities say that on October 31, 2013, in Williamson County, Gunn sold cocaine to a confidential source working for law enforcement.

On the firearm offense, Gunn faces a term of imprisonment of up to ten years, to be followed by three years' supervised release, and a $250,000 fine. On the cocaine offense, Gunn faces a term of imprisonment of up to 20 years, to be followed by three years' supervised release, and a $1,000,000 fine.
