COLUMBIA, SC (WCBD) – An Orangeburg man has pleaded guilty to felon in possession of a firearm.

A May 27 press release

According to a May 27 press release from the US Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina, Quinnton Jamar Henderson, 32, pled guilty to a felon in possession of a firearm.

In 2019, Henderson was wanted on an outstanding state court bench warrant.

The United States Marshals Carolina Regional Task Force found him sleeping inside his vehicle in the driveway of his Orangeburg residence. When officers attempted to wake him, Henderson drove off and fled the scene.

Officers located him off Hwy 210 in Branchville and found a .380 caliber handgun during the arrest.

Henderson’s prior state convictions include the following:

  • Possession of stolen firearm (2009)
  • Failure to stop for blue light and siren (2009)

  • Two counts of failure to stop for a blue light and siren (2017)
  • Two counts of grand larceny (2017)

Henderson pled guilty to the charge of a felon in possession of a handgun.

He faces up to 10 years in federal prison.
