WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A Delaware man is facing at least five years in prison after pleading guilty to federal gun and drug charges.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tromar Mapp of Seaford entered the plea Monday and is scheduled to be sentenced in September.

He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years for using a gun in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Mapp, who was convicted in 2012 of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, also faces a maximum penalty of 10 years for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, and the possibility of decades more in prison for distributing heroin.

But federal prosecutors have agreed to recommend a sentence of no more than 40 months on top of the mandatory five-year term.
