Felon Sentenced to Prison for Illegally Possessing Loaded Pistol

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 6, 2012

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A resident of Pittsburgh, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to 46 months imprisonment in federal prison on his conviction of federal firearms laws, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

Senior United States District Judge Alan N. Bloch imposed the sentence on Anthony T. White, Jr., 31.

According to information presented to the court, the defendant and his co-defendant Gregory Corbin were convicted felons who each had loaded pistols in their possession on Oct. 28, 2010 when they were stopped by Pittsburgh police officers in the Northview Heights section of Pittsburgh.

Prior to imposing sentence, Judge Bloch noted that the defendant had recently been released from a lengthy state prison sentence for shooting another individual and that he had two prior offenses for violence as a juvenile as well. Judge Bloch determined that a sentence at the top of the sentencing guideline range for White was warranted in this matter.

Corbin recently pleaded guilty to his second felony firearms offense and is scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 8, 2013 at 11:30 a.m.

Assistant United States Attorney Ross E. Lenhardt prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of White.
