Rochester Man Sentenced on Gun Charge

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced today that Johnny L. Wynn, II, 31, of Rochester, N.Y., who was convicted of possession of a sawed off shotgun, was sentenced to 70 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles E. Moynihan, who handled the case, stated that Wynn, a convicted felon, possessed a 12 gauge, Revelation Model 312 bolt action shot gun. During an undercover investigation into the illegal trafficking of firearms, an undercover law enforcement officer purchased the shotgun along with a 9mm rifle from Wynn for $1,000.00 in cash. The sale occurred on April 16, 2009, inside of a vehicle outside the defendant’s residence on Cutler Street in Rochester.

The sentencing was the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, under the direction of Scott Heagney, Resident Agent in Charge and the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of James Sheppard.
