Court sets date for Hadsell resentencing on weapons charge

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) -- Wesley Hadsell will face resentencing on a federal weapons charge in November, 10 On Your Side has confirmed.

Hadsell was originally sentenced in November 2016 to 20 years in prison for being a felon in possession of ammunition. An appeals court vacated that time last June, sending it back for resentencing.

The court's decision came after Hasdell appealed a district court's ruling that a previous statutory burglary conviction was a violent felony. 

A federal judge who initially sentenced Hadsell on the weapons charge took into account his extensive criminal history. Hadsell could have faced 10 years for the charge without the "armed career criminal" classification.

Hadsell is also a person of interest in the the murder of his step-daughter, Angelica "AJ" Hadsell, who disappeared in 2016 -- and was later found dead 50 miles from her home.

The resentecing hearing is set for Nov. 9 in Norfolk.
