LOGAN–Ogden resident Marvin Lee Peterson was fined $200 Monday in 1st District Court for having a loaded firearm in his vehicle, a class B misdemeanor. Peterson’s guilty plea is being held in abeyance, meaning the court will dismiss both the charge and guilty plea if Peterson pays the fine to the court within six months.

The Cache County Sheriff’s Office cited Peterson for having the loaded firearm on Oct. 17.

“He is an otherwise law-abiding citizen,” said county attorney Tony Baird, adding that this case had unique circumstances because Peterson had the firearm for a hunting trip.
