Harrisburg Man Sentenced For Firearm Charges

HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Christopher Fleisher, age 36, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced today by United States District Court Judge William W. Caldwell in Harrisburg to 46 months’ imprisonment for firearm charges.

According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Fleisher pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. The charge stems from an incident that occurred on June 4, 2015 in Harrisburg and involved a stolen .38 caliber Smith and Wesson handgun.

The case was investigated by the Harrisburg Office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Harrisburg Police Department and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Office of Probation and Parole. Prosecution of the case was assigned to Assistant United States Attorney William A. Behe.          

This case was brought as part of the Violent Crime Reduction Partnership (“VCRP”), a district wide initiative to combat the spread of violent crime in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Led by the United States Attorney’s Office, the VCRP consists of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies whose mission is to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who commit violent crimes with firearms.
