Florida Woman Pleads Guilty to Making a False Statement to a Firearms Dealer

U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that KIMBERLY TREMBLAY, age 31, of Florida, pled guilty today to a one-count bill of information with making a false statement to a federally licensed firearms dealer, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924(a)(1)(A).

According to court documents, TREMBLAY made false statements to a federally licensed firearms dealer, in which she indicated that she was the actual buyer of a firearm, and that she was not under indictment in any court for a felony, whereas in fact she acquired the firearm for a convicted felon and was herself under a bill of information for a felony in East Baton Rouge Parish.

TREMBLAY faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five years, a fine of up to $250,000.00, three years supervised release after imprisonment, and a mandatory $100 special assessment.

Judge Lance M. Africk set sentencing for June 14, 2018.

U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in investigating this matter. Assistant United States Attorneys Myles Ranier and Nicholas Moses are charge of the prosecution.
