Bristol Woman Pleads Guilty to Federal Gun Charge

Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JENNIFER CARRION–SEGARRA, 29, of Bristol, pleaded guilty today before United States Magistrate Judge Donna Martinez in Hartford to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on May 22, 2012, CARRION–SEGARRA sold a pink Kahr .380 pistol, which she had nicknamed "Pinky," to an undercover agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Fireworks and Explosives (ATF). The firearm was previously purchased by CARRION–SEGARRA’s husband.

Prior to May 22, 2012, CARRION–SEGARRA had been convicted of possession of narcotics and sale of narcotics, both felony offenses. 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.

CARRION–SEGARRA is scheduled to be sentenced by United States District Judge Robert N. Chatigny on December 11, 2013, at which time she faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000.

CARRION–SEGARRA has been released on a $150,000 bond since her arrest on March 26, 2013.

This case is being investigated by ATF and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan S. Freimann and Special Assistant United States Attorney Natasha Dye.
