A Foothill Farms man who shot and killed a teenager during what was supposed to be a marijuana transaction last year has pleaded no contest to a gun charge and was sentenced to four years in prison.
Terrell Davon Craig, 40, entered the plea Monday in Sacramento Superior Court to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, records show.
He had initially been booked for murder in the Oct. 10 shooting death of Joshua Scott Trahan-Mays, 17, in Foothill Farms. However, Craig was never charged with murder by the District Attorney's Office.
Sacramento court records show that Craig has a 1998 felon-with-a-gun conviction and was sentenced to 32 months in prison.
He told The Bee in an interview that he has an additional conviction for shooting and killing a drug dealer when he was 17.
He entered his no-contest plea Monday in Judge Joseph Orr's courtroom just before the case was scheduled to be assigned for a preliminary hearing.
