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

          CONCORD, N.H. – Jeremy Robinson, 26, of Hyannis Massachusetts, was sentenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire for illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, announced Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith.  Chief U.S. District Judge Joseph Laplante imposed a sentence of 30 months imprisonment, three years supervised release, and a mandatory special assessment of $100.

          On August 11, 2015, Robinson pleaded guilty to a one-count indictment charging him with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1).

          According to the indictment and other statements made in court, Robinson travelled to New Hampshire in November 2014 and possessed an H&K 9mm pistol and ammunition manufactured by Fiocchi at a firing range in Manchester.  At the time, Robinson was prohibited from possessing a firearm as a result of a prior felony conviction.  Robinson subsequently posted videos and photographs of his operation of the rented firearm to social media websites.

          Robinson is currently incarcerated in Massachusetts on an unrelated conviction, and Chief Judge Laplante ordered his federal sentence to run consecutive to his state incarceration.

          This matter was jointly investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, the Barnstable Police Department, and the Barnstable Sheriff's Office.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles L. Rombeau.
