Enfield Man Sentenced to 29 Months on Firearm Charge
CONCORD - Scotty Gonzalez, 29, of Enfield, was sentenced to 29 months in federal prison for unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Gonzalez is legally prohibited from possessing firearms due to a prior felony conviction and a prior conviction for a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. On July 31, 2019, probation officers found Gonzalez in possession of a rifle and over 300 rounds of ammunition at his residence in Enfield.
Gonzalez previously pleaded guilty on April 29, 2021.
“In order to protect public safety, we must keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley. “By working with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute armed criminals, we are helping to keep the citizens of the Granite State safe from violent crime.”
“Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is not only illegal, but it compromises the safety of our communities,” said ATF Special Agent in Charge James M. Ferguson “This sentencing is another example that working jointly with our partners makes our communities safer.”
This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with assistant from New Hampshire Probation and Parole Officers. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Krasinski.
