HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Reginald L. Lomax, Jr., age 32, of York, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on June 28, 2017, by United States District Court Judge William W. Caldwell to 15 years’ imprisonment for being a felon in possession of a firearm.


According to U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, in December 2014, Lomax, Jr. was found to be unlawfully in possession of a firearm (Jennings, Model J22, .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol) in York County. Lomax is a convicted felon, making it illegal for him to possess a firearm. In addition, Lomax, Jr. was designated an “Armed Career Criminal” by virtue of his prior criminal record which included three felony drug trafficking convictions and subjected him to the minimum mandatory 15 year term.


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.


This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with the assistance of the York City Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney James T. Clancy prosecuted the case.
