Placeholder Image
A Camden man pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, according to a press release issued by South Carolina U.S. Attorney Beth Drake. Senior U.S. District Judge Cameron McGowan Currie accepted 22-year-old Swan Nicoyis Jackson’s guilty plea and will impose sentence after reviewing a pre-sentence report to be prepared by the U.S. Probation Office. Evidence presented in court established that on the morning of June 2, 2017, Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies encountered Jackson and another man walking down railroad tracks near a neighborhood that had recent thefts.
