Felon with handgun gets six years
Lake Superior Court Judge Diane Ross Boswell sentenced a 51-year-old Gary man to six years in prison for unlawful possession of a handgun by a serious violent felon.
Terry Lee Perkins, who pleaded guilty to the charge in July, admitted he had a .22-caliber pistol in his coat pocket when Gary police were called on May 8, 2010, to the home of a woman with whom he was arguing.
Prosecutors dismissed a habitual offender sentencing enhancement.
The handgun charge is punishable by a sentence of six to 20 years.
