Coalport woman guilty of gun charge

Corson did not have concealed carry permit

CLEARFIELD — A Coal­port woman accused of possessing a stolen gun pleaded guilty Tuesday during colloquy court in Clearfield County.

Kristen Erin Corson, 36, was sentenced by Presi­dent Judge Fredric J. Ammerman to six months to one year in jail and one year’s consecutive probation after she pleaded guilty to firearm not to be carried without a license, a felony offense.

The charges stem from a traffic stop in Decatur Township on April 20, 2018.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, state police pulled over a vehicle driven by Zachary Scott Duckett, 29, of Wood­land because he failed to stop at a stop sign and was having trouble staying in the right lane.

After Duckett failed several field sobriety tests, he was taken into custody.

During the traffic stop, Corson, a passenger in the vehicle, put a 9 mm gun in her purse. When she was searched, the firearm was discovered. She does not have a concealed carry permit, according to the report.

Duckett was charged with felony counts of re­ceiving stolen property and misdemeanor driving un­der the influence. He was sentenced in September to 90 days to three years in state prison.
