BOSTON – A Springfield man pleaded guilty today to unlawfully possessing a firearm and ammunition. 

Robbie Delgado, 25, pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni scheduled sentencing for Oct. 2, 2024. Delgado was indicted by a federal grand jury in March 2024.

On Feb. 8, 2024, Delgado was found in possession of a Baretta .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun. Delgado is prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition following a 2019 state conviction in Hampden County of armed robbery and armed assault with intent to rob, for which he was sentenced to 18 months in prison, followed by four years’ probation.

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; Jodi Cohen, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division; and Springfield Police Superintendent Lawrence Akers made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd E. Newhouse of the Springfield Branch Office is prosecuting the case.
