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.
