BUFFALO – A City of Jamestown man plead guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition Friday in a Buffalo courtroom.
U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. reports that Willie C. Graham 38, could face a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Emmanuel Ulubiyo, who is handling the case, said that on October 8, 2018, during the execution of a state search warrant at the defendant’s residence on Foote Avenue in Jamestown, law enforcement officers recovered two firearms, ammunition, two magazines, a scope, a Kevlar vest, and a quantity of methamphetamine.
At the time of the search warrant, Graham was a two-time convicted felon, and as a result, he was legally prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition.
The plea is the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge John B. Devito, New York Field Division, and the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Chief Harry Snellings.
Sentencing is scheduled to take place in January 2020.
