RALEIGH - United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that in federal court today Chief United States District Judge James C. Dever III, sentenced VINCENT LAMAR CORBIN, 43, to 37 months imprisonment followed by three years supervised release.

A Federal Grand Jury returned a Criminal Indictment on September 20, 2011. On December 12, 2011, CORBIN pled guilty to possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 922(g)(9) and 924.

According to the investigation, CORBIN, who had previously been convicted of an assault on a female in 2007, a misdemeanor, was found in possession of a Glock, 40 caliber handgun, along with ammunition on June 28, 2011. A search warrant was obtained and executed at the residence. Officers found the handgun in CORBIN’s vehicle.

This case was part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) initiative which encourages federal, state, and local agencies to cooperate in a unified “team effort” against gun crime, targeting repeat offenders who continually plague their communities.

Investigation of this case was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Henderson Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney S. Katherine Burnette is serving as prosecutor for the government.
