For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Kenneth Kindlon, age 47, of Caroga Lake, New York, was sentenced yesterday to 36 months in prison for possessing an unregistered, short-barreled rifle.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith; John B. Devito, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), New York Field Division; and Kevin Kelly, Special Agent in Charge, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Buffalo Field Office.

Kindlon admitted that on June 22, 2016, he knowingly possessed a 5.56 caliber rifle with a barrel length of approximately 10.5 inches, and showed the firearm to an individual seeking to purchase firearms and firearm parts.  Kindlon never registered the firearm in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record, as required by federal law.

Senior United States District Judge Norman A. Mordue also sentenced Kindlon to 3 years of supervised release, to be served following Kindlon’s release from prison.

This case was investigated by the ATF and HSI, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alicia Giglio Suarez.
