BOSTON – A Springfield man was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury in Springfield for unlawfully possessing a firearm and ammunition. 

Robbie Delgado, 25, was indicted on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. Delgado will make an initial appearance in federal court in Springfield later today. 

According to the indictment, on Feb. 8, 2024, Delgado allegedly possessed a Baretta .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun after being convicted of a felony. 

The charge of possession of the firearm by a previously convicted felon provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, up to three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy; Brian A. Kyes, United States Marshal for the District of Massachusetts; and Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd E. Newhouse of the Springfield Branch Office is prosecuting the case. 

The details contained in the indictment are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
