Waterbury Felon Pleads Guilty to Federal Gun Charge
Boston Field Division
John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that GLENN JAMISON, 37, of Waterbury, pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.
According to court documents and statement made in court, on January 10, 2018, Jamison possessed a loaded 9mm Ruger LC9 handgun in Waterbury. At the time, he was on state probation and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.
Jamison’s criminal history includes numerous felony convictions. It is a violation of federal law for a person previously convicted of a felony offense to possess a firearm or ammunition that has moved in interstate or foreign commerce.
Judge Hall scheduled sentencing for July 17, 2019, at which time Jamison faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years.
Jamison has been detained since his arrest on January 10, 2018.
This matter is being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Waterbury Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Natasha Freismuth.
This prosecution has been brought though Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone.
