A Marion man who was indicted on a weapons charge last year made his initial appearance in court Tuesday.

According to a Friday news release from U.S. Attorney Donald Boyce’s office, Reginald L. Cavitt, 36, of Marion, was charged Oct. 3 with a one-count indictment with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. The event allegedly took place June 28 in Williamson County.

Cavitt is currently being held without bond pending a bond hearing Jan. 30.

If guilty, the charge brings with it a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison followed by three years of mandatory supervised release as well as a $25,000 fine.
