Briton pleads guilty on Trump gun charges

Donald-Trump

Washington: A British man accused of trying to shoot US presidential candidate Donald Trump has pleaded guilty to some of the charges he faced.

Michael Sandford, 20, from Dorking, Surrey, was due to stand trial over an incident at a Trump rally in Las Vegas on 18 June, the BBC reported.

He pleaded guilty to being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting an official function.

His plea means he could be deported and his sentence reduced.

Sandford may have faced up to 20 years in a US prison if he had been convicted at trial of both charges.

He was due to stand trial later in September over an incident at a rally in which he allegedly tried to grab a policeman’s gun to attack the Republican presidential candidate.
