Port Angeles – Port Angeles native, Adam Chamberlin was sentenced Tuesday in Clallam County Superior Court over a conviction for possession of an illegal firearm.
Superior Court Judge Chris Melly converted a 30 day jail sentence converted to community service.
The case centered on the results of a search warrant where Port Angeles Police Officers discovered a sawed off shotgun at Chamberlin's residence. A shotgun with one or more barrels less than 18 inches long is illegal to possess under State law.
Chamberlain had no felony history, making his potential sentence only 1 to 3 months under the Sentencing Reform Act. The Prosecutor's Office had asked for 60 days.
For now, Chamberlin is now a convicted felon and cannot legally own, use or possess a firearm unless his rights to do so have been restored, according to the prosecuting attorney's office.
