(WNY News Now) – An Amherst man received a 4-year prison term, plus 3 years of post-release supervision, for unlawful firearm possession after police discover “ghost guns” and ammunition in his home.
Buffalo – Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announced the sentencing of 45-year-old Jason P. Sciabarrasi of Amherst on August 4, 2023. State Supreme Court Justice Debra Givens handed down a 4-year prison sentence, coupled with 3 years of post-release supervision.
The case stemmed from a September 21, 2021, search warrant executed by Amherst Police at Sciabarrasi’s Guilford Lane residence. Investigators uncovered two “ghost guns,” alongside shotguns, rifles, gun components, and a substantial cache of ammunition. Notably, Sciabarrasi lacked a pistol permit, leading to his arrest on charges of illegal firearms possession.
Sciabarrasi pleaded guilty to one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree, classified as a Class “C” violent felony.
