Oakdale man faces 10 years in prison for firearm charge

FRESNO - Oakdale resident Adolio Garcia, 32, pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of a firearm after having committed a domestic violence crime.

U.S. Department of Justice spokeswoman Lauren Horwood said according to court documents Garcia was caught with two semi-automatic handguns, a rifle and a double-barrel shotgun in his possession. Under federal law, Garcia is not permitted to possess firearms because of a 2006 conviction for domestic violence in Stanislaus County.

Garcia faces a maximum prison term of 10 years and a fine of $250,000, said Horwood. Garcia's sentencing will be determined after the court considers any applicable statutory factors that may affect the charges.
