Tahlequah man pleads guilty to federal firearm charge

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that a Tahlequah man pleaded guilty to charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

The indictment alleged that on Jan. 23, 2024, Nathan Quinn Harrington, 30, possessed a .22 caliber, semi-automatic pistol and ammunition that had been shipped and transported in interstate commerce. Harrington was convicted of a crime punishable by a term of imprisonment exceeding one year when he possessed the firearm and ammunition.

Charges against Harrington arose after a probe by the Tahlequah Police Department, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Honorable Judge Gerald L. Jackson accepted the plea and Harrington was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending his sentence. Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan E. Soverly prosecuted the case.
