Concord, NH - Manchester Man Sentenced to 36 Months for Gun Crime
Kenneth Kirkpatrick, 33, of Manchester, was sentenced in federal court on Thursday to 36 months in prison for illegally possessing a firearm and ammunition.
According to court documents and statements made in court, law enforcement officers obtained information that Kirkpatrick was selling firearms. On July 26, 2018, Kirkpatrick sold a firearm, ammunition, and firearm accessories to an individual who was cooperating with the ATF. As a convicted felon, Kirkpatrick could not lawfully possess a firearm or ammunition.
Kirkpatrick’s previously pleaded guilty on June 3, 2019.
“Federal law prohibits felons from possessing firearms,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “The law is intended to reduce violent crime by keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. Through Project Safe Neighborhoods, we work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify, prosecute, and incarcerate those who violate federal gun laws.”
This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Manchester Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Krasinski.
The case is part of ATF’s Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative, which is a federally-funded program intended to reduce gun violence through law enforcement training, public education, and aggressive law enforcement efforts to investigate and prosecute gun-related crimes.
Charge: Prohibited person in possession of a firearm in violation of 18 U.S.C.922(g)(1).
