A Watertown man accused of pointing a loaded handgun at a woman during an argument has pleaded guilty to a weapons charge.
Twenty-four year old Marcus Mayo was charged in January with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree menacing.
He pleaded guilty in Jefferson County Court Thursday to third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
He faces from two to four years in prison when he's sentenced September 21.
The incident happened January 9.
Watertown police were called to an apartment at 675 Bronson Street. A woman came out onto the porch while a Mayo stood behind her near the doorway.
Police say they ordered Mayo to come out of the home and show his hands, which he did after a few minutes.
Police say they recovered a loaded handgun with extra ammunition and learned Mayo had pointed the gun at the woman.
