Manchester Felon Pleads Guilty to Illegal Firearm Possession

            CONCORD - Christopher D. Mann, 35, of Manchester, pleaded guilty in federal court to unlawfully possessing a firearm, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, on April 16, 2019, the United States Marshals Service executed an arrest warrant for Mann having violated supervised release from a prior offense. Mann was arrested in a vehicle that was owned by Mann's girlfriend. At the time of the arrest, the deputy Marshal seized a Glock .357 caliber handgun from the passenger seat where Mann had been sitting. In addition, the deputy Marshal seized from Mann's pocket two magazines of ammunition for the handgun that was found on seat.     

            Mann was prohibited from possessing any firearms or ammunition as a result of at least one prior felony conviction.

            Mann is scheduled to be sentenced on November 22, 2019.

            “In order to keep our communities safe, federal law prohibits convicted felons from possessing firearms,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “Thanks to the excellent enforcement work of the U.S. Marshals Service, this convicted felon was disarmed.”  

                This matter was investigated by the United States Marshals Service.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Cole Davis.
