Sentencing March 7 for Kingsford man


Staff Writer

MARQUETTE – A sentencing date has been set for a Kingsford man charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The charge against David Allen Bergman stems from a Sept. 3 incident that occurred in Dickinson County.

Bergman pleaded guilty, and Judge Robert Holmes Bell set sentencing for March 7 at 1 p.m. in U.S. District Court in Marquette.

After being stopped by police on Sept. 3, a loaded Ruger Model Mark 2, .22 Caliber Semi Automatic Pistol was recovered from the vehicle that Bergman allegedly stole from his mother.

Bergman is being represented by Al Peterson, a federal public defender.

Felony charges against Bergman filed in Dickinson County have been dismissed in favor of federal prosecution.

Bergman has a 2002 conviction in Wisconsin for possession of three to 10 grams of heroin with intent to distribute, manufacture, deliver.
