New Hampshire Man Sentenced for Gun Traficking
FEBRUARY 7, 2014

BOSTON - A New Hampshire male was sentenced today for being a previously convicted felon in possession of firearms.

Sean Meola, 42, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock to 70 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In October 2013, Meola pleaded guilty to being a previously convicted felon in possession of firearms.

On January 14, 2013, Meola negotiated with an undercover federal agent for the sale of a number of firearms. Meola and another individual arrived at a prearranged location and sold the undercover agent three semi-automatic handguns and two shotguns for which Meola received $1,200. Further investigation revealed that the weapons had been recently stolen from a home in New Hampshire.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Daniel J. Kumor, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, Boston Field Division, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by Kenneth G. Shine of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
