2018 Clarksburg High School Gun Conviction Cleared

by Cordell Pugh

Almost four years after 18-year-old brought a homemade or “ghost” gun with him to class at Clarksburg High School, his conviction has been cleared.

In April 2018, Alwin Chen pleaded guilty to carrying a gun on his person, however he was recently granted “probation before judgment”.

This was first reported by the Washington Post‘s Dan Morse, who described the change as being “in many ways…a continuation of Chen’s sentencing from three years ago.”

Court records show that Chen has stayed out of trouble and performed several hundred hours of community service since the 2018 incident.

Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge John Maloney, a former prosecutor, reportedly told Chen, “If you stay out of trouble, the world is your oyster…Good luck to you.”
