New Hampshire Firearm Purchaser Sentenced to Federal Prison for Providing False Information During the Acquisition of Firearms

CONCORD, NH — Ulrick Lucien, 25 was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to eighteen months in prison for providing false information in connection with the acquisition of three firearms, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

Lucien, a Massachusetts resident, presented a false New Hampshire address in order to purchase three firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer in Manchester, New Hampshire. He was indicted and charged with one count of making a false statement during the acquisition of a firearm, and one count of making a false statement in information required to be kept by a federal firearms dealer. After a three–day trial, the jury returned guilty verdicts against Lucien on both counts presented.

Lucien’s prosecution arose from an investigation undertaken by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Debra Walsh and Assistant U.S. Attorney Nick Abramson.
