Farmington Man Sentenced to 70-Month Prison Term for Federal Firearms Conviction
ALBUQUERQUE – United States Attorney Kenneth J. Gonzales announced that, this morning in federal court in Albuquerque, Jason Judah, 29, was sentenced to a 70-month term of imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release based on his guilty plea to a federal firearms offense.
Judah, a resident of Farmington, New Mexico, was indicted on April 14, 2010 and charged as a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He was arrested on May 3, 2010 and has been in federal custody since that time.
According to the indictment, on July 31, 2009, Judah was in unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition in San Juan County. At that time, Judah was precluded from possessing firearms and ammunition because he previously had been convicted of four felony offenses, namely, distribution of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, and breaking and entering, in the Eleventh Judicial District Court for the State of New Mexico.
Judah entered a guilty plea to the indictment under a plea agreement with the United States Attorney's Office on January 7, 2011.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Farmington Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Lynn W.Y. Wang and Holland S. Kastrin.
