Gloucester County, New Jersey, Man Sentenced to 114 Months in Prison for Weapons Charge
Field Division: Newark Field Division
CAMDEN, N.J. – A Gloucester County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 114 months in prison for being a previously convicted felon in possession of a weapon, Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick announced.
Darius A. Robinson, 35, of Westville, previously pleaded guilty before Judge Noel L. Hillman to Count 2 of an indictment charging him with being a felon in possession of a weapon. Judge Hillman imposed the sentence today in Camden federal court.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
On Feb. 11, 2016, Robinson was arrested while in possession of a Titan .25-cal. handgun in Gloucester County. Robinson had previously been convicted on drug charges and sentenced to three years in prison.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Hillman sentenced Robinson to three years of supervised release.
Acting U.S. Attorney Fitzpatrick credited special agents of the ATF, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge John B. Devito, Newark Field Division, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.
The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jacqueline M. Carle of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Camden.
