NORRISTOWN — A Lower Pottsgrove man who once served jail time for stabbing a Limerick teen has been sent back to jail for illegally possessing a firearm during an alleged hunting excursion in Limerick.
Michael Evan Fallon, 23, was sentenced to 11½ to 23 months in the county jail, to be followed by five years’ probation, after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of persons not to possess a firearm in connection with the December 2013, incident near Steinmetz and Mill roads in Limerick.
“What he’s admitting to is that he was in possession of a shotgun without being properly licensed. The reason he wouldn’t be able to get a license is because he had a prior conviction for aggravated assault,” said Assistant District Attorney Stewart Ryan, explaining the nature of Fallon’s guilty plea.
Police, in court papers, also alleged Fallon had an odor of alcohol on his person when they confronted him in the wooded area at the time of the Dec.21, 2013, hunting incident.
