Nassau Man Pleads Guilty to Unlawfully Possessing Firearms

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Cory M. Saddlemire, age 35, of Nassau, New York, pled guilty today to being a felon in possession of firearms, and to possessing firearms while subject to a protective order.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Special Agent in Charge Delano Reid of the New York Field Office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF).

Saddlemire was charged by indictment on November 5, 2015 with having unlawfully possessed, in his home, a Rossi shotgun, model S201220, and a .22 caliber Marlin rifle. 

Saddlemire faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, and a term of supervised release of up to 3 years when he is sentenced on June 22, 2016 by U.S. District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on a combination of factors including the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and relevant statutes.

This case was investigated by the ATF and the Nassau Village Police Department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Solomon B. Shinerock.
