1280 Timothy Ketterman

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man has been convicted of illegally possessing a firearm in connection to a 2021 fatal crash.

During the late evening hours of October 21, 2021, investigators responded to the intersection of Queen Avenue and Duchess Drive for a fatal crash. While at the scene, Sheriff Mike Lewis recovered a firearm from immediately beneath where 35-year-old Timothy Ketterman was seated. A search of Ketterman’s vehicle revealed additional .22 caliber ammunition, an extended magazine, and drug paraphernalia. Ketterman is a convicted felon and legally not eligible to possess a handgun.

Following a two-day jury trial, Ketterman was convicted on Tuesday of possession of a regulated firearm by a prohibited person and related charges. Sentencing was deferred pending a pre-sentence investigation report, and Ketterman will remain in custody pending sentencing.
