BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Errick Roseboro, 26 of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of being a person prohibited from possessing a firearm, was sentenced to serve 12 months and one day in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles J. Volkert, Jr., who is handling the case, stated that on October 21, 2018, the Buffalo Police Department stopped the defendant’s vehicle for a traffic infraction. Officers found Roseboro unlawfully to be in possession of a loaded firearm and marijuana. Subsequent investigation determined that that the defendant was a habitual user of the controlled substance, and as such, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge John B. Devito; and the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Byron Lockwood.
