Orlando Man Sentenced To 10 Years For Felony Gun Possession

Orlando, Florida – Chief U.S. District Judge Anne C. Conway today sentenced Eric Emmanuel Reynolds (31, Orlando) to 10 years in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Reynolds pleaded guilty on January 16, 2015.

According to court documents, during an undercover investigation in 2014, Reynolds sold drugs and guns to a confidential informant on three separate occasions.  When law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Reynold’s residence, they discovered several different types of drugs and guns in his possession. At the time of the incident, Reynolds had several previous felony convictions for gun and drug crimes. As such, he was prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Orlando Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Embry J. Kidd.
