At his felony settlement conference, Friday, Oct. 17, Matthew Subish, 41, of Idyllwild, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for possessing a firearm or ammunition. Subish’s previous felony convictions are the reason he is prohibited from possessing a firearm, according to state law.
His sentence for this misdemeanor includes three years of probation and 45 days in the custody of Riverside County sheriff, which he has already served and been credited.
In May, Subish was originally arrested on a felony charge for possession of a firearm and had pleaded not guilty. The District Attorney’s office agreed to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor and Subish pleaded guilty.
