A Harrisburg man is convicted on federal charges after brandishing a stolen firearm at a female victim in the 1600 Block of Park Street in Harrisburg on July 13, 2012. Carlos C. Hill, 41, was convicted of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon. The jury returned a verdict after three hours.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Hill and co-defendant Elijah U. Brown, Jr., were indicted in September 2012 following stepped-up federal efforts to partner with Harrisburg police and the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office to fight violent crime in Harrisburg. Hill and Brown were charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a stolen firearm.
The firearm was subsequently recovered by the Harrisburg Police Bureau.
Hill faces a statutory minimum of 15 years imprisonment. A sentencing date for Hill has not yet been scheduled. Brown is scheduled for trial on April 1, 2013.
