ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Montrya D. Brown, 31, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, was sentenced to serve 30 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Katelyn M. Hartford, who handled the case, stated that on January 6, 2022, New York State Parole Officers searched Montrya’s St. Paul Street residence, and seized a 12-gauge shotgun and multiple rounds of ammunition. Montrya was previously convicted in September and October of 2015, and in June of 2020, of felony crimes in Monroe County Court and is legally prohibited from possessing ammunition.

The sentencing is a result of an investigation by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, under the direction of Acting Commissioner Anthony J. Annucci and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge John B. DeVito.
