Waterbury Felon Sentenced to Prison for Possessing Loaded Handgun

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that GLENN JAMISON, 37, of Waterbury, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven to 25 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for illegally possessing a firearm.

According to court documents and statement made in court, on January 10, 2018, Jamison possessed a loaded 9mm Ruger LC9 handgun in Waterbury.  At the time, he was on state probation and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.

Jamison’s criminal history includes numerous felony convictions.  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.

Jamison has been detained in state custody since his arrest on January 10, 2018.  On April 24, 2019, he pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.  Jamison will not receive federal credit for approximately 16 months he served in state custody since his arrest.

This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Waterbury Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Natasha Freismuth.

This prosecution has been brought though Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone.
