FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FELON IN POSSESSION SENTENCED TO 10 YEARS
Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz sentenced Gregory Williams, age 25, of Baltimore, today to 10 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release for being a felon in possession of a firearm, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to his guilty plea, on September 27, 2006 members of the Baltimore City Police and ATF intercepted a phone call between a drug trafficker and Williams in which the two agreed to meet. Later that day, agents observed Williams enter and leave the drug trafficker’s home. As Williams departed the area, officers stopped Williams for a traffic violation, and seized a small amount of marijuana, three grams of heroin, four cell phones and $1,458. Williams admitted that he had a gun at his home, from which officers subsequently recovered a .38 caliber revolver. Williams had previously been convicted of a felony.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Baltimore City Police Department for their investigative work, and commended Assistant United States Attorney Michael Hanlon, who prosecuted the case.
