A 37-year-old Ohio woman has pleaded guilty to federal charges for illegally possessing a gun and using it to obstruct a Deputy U.S. Marshal in West Virginia.
According to a plea agreement, Peggy Chaffin, of Portsmouth, Ohio, could face 10 years in prison on the first count and 20 on the second.
Chaffin admitted having a .22-caliber rifle despite a previous felony conviction for heroin possession in Kentucky in 2013.
She remains jailed pending sentencing and has agreed to cooperate with authorities.
