Toledo man faces charge related to firearms records

An information was filed charging Dimitar Trampevski, 28, of Toledo, with making a false entry or failure to make an entry in records by a federal firearms dealer, said Carole S. Rendon, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracey Ballard Tangeman following an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Toledo.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
