HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Hakim Jamison, age 37, of York, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on January 16, 2023, to 60 months in prison by United States District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking. 

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Jamison previously pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking. Jamison purchased a .45 caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol and a box of Winchester .45 caliber ammunition from Stoneybrook Shooting Supply for two codefendants, who were using those firearms in furtherance of their own drug trafficking activities.

Codefendants Shiloh Idris Johnson and Kadie Jean Swartz are scheduled for trial on April 1, 2024.  

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).  Assistant U.S. Attorney Christian Haugsby prosecuted the case.

This case was prosecuted under the new criminal provisions of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which Congress enacted, and the President signed in June 2022. The Act is the first federal statute specifically designed to target the unlawful trafficking and straw-purchasing of firearms.
