MOUNT VERNON — A Centerburg man was found not guilty of falsifying a concealed carry application at the close of a jury trial Tuesday in Knox County Common Pleas Court.

A jury found David M. Griffith, 42, not guilty of one count of falsification, a fourth-degree felony.

The charge stems from Jan. 14, when Griffith answered “no” to questions that asked if he had a felony conviction on a carrying a concealed weapon (CCW) permit application. However, Griffith had been previously convicted in 2000 in Delaware County of receiving stolen property, a fourthdegree felony. In that case, Griffith pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three year’s probation.
