Travis Gray Anderson, a 27-year-old Victoria man, formerly of Lunenburg, was convicted of perjury recently in Lunenburg Circuit Court as a result of providing a false answer on his application for a concealed handgun permit.

Anderson was sentenced to three years in prison with all suspended.

The summary of evidence that was presented at the presentation of a plea agreement revealed that on May 23, 2017, Anderson presented an application for concealed handgun permit to the clerk’s office of the Circuit Court and swore under oath that the information was true and correct. Upon review it was discovered that whereas Anderson had stated on the application that he had never been convicted of a misdemeanor offense within the five-year period immediately preceding the application, it was determined that he did have criminal convictions within the five-years, including recklessly handling a firearm in 2014 and two convictions of possession of marijuana.

Conditions of Anderson’s suspended sentence include good behavior for three years, supervised probation, 50 hours of community service, warrantless searches, and not being within 100 feet of firearms.
