Mark McGraw II to be arraigned on concealed firearm charge

Mark McGraw II


Mark McGraw II, 25, son of former School Board Member Diyonne McGraw, is set to be arraigned on September 9 on a charge of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit. He is currently free on $5000 bond. The charge is a third-degree felony with a possible sentence of up to 5 years imprisonment if he is found guilty.

McGraw was arrested in April on charges of marijuana possession and carrying a concealed firearm without a permit, but the marijuana possession charge has been dropped.

The arrest was made after McGraw was pulled over for failing to stop at a stop sign. The officer wrote that he smelled marijuana from inside the vehicle, and 10.8 grams of marijuana were found in the car. A bag that McGraw was carrying across his chest contained a Glock 19 loaded with 14 rounds in the magazine and with a round chambered, “readily accessible” to McGraw. The gun was later found to be reported stolen in Tallahassee. McGraw has stated on Facebook that he graduated in April from Florida A&M, which is located in Tallahassee.
