MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO WEAPONS CHARGE

A Pleasantville man pleaded guilty on Monday to possession of a weapon by a convicted person for a November 2010 incident and will be sentenced to seven years in prison, Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel stated.
Julius Hall, 30, must serve five years in prison before becoming eligible for parole. He was arrested on Main Street in Pleasantville when he was on his way to sell drugs to a confidential informant. Simultaneous to his arrest, a search warrant was executed at Hall’s West Leeds Avenue residence. During the search authorities located a shotgun in the home, which the defendant is prohibited from possessing due to a prior conviction for possession of drugs with the intent to distribute in a school zone, according to Assistant Prosecutor Emily Bell, who represented the state.
Hall’s arrest was the result of a five-month-long investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and other law enforcement officers.
Superior Court Judge Mark Sandson will sentence Hall on July 15.
