MONTVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) — A Montville man has been sentenced to serve 13 months in prison for possessing several firearms as a convicted felon.
37-year old Jason Scott will remain on a supervised release for three years upon his release from prison. Scott was arrested in December 2014 after investigators were informed that Scott was attempting to sell firearms for cash. It is a violation of federal law for a person previously convicted of a felony offense to possess a firearm or ammunition which has moved in interstate or foreign commerce.
A search of his residence found a Mosin Nagant 7.62 x 54r, Model 44, rifle, and an Izhmash Saiga .308 semi-automatic rifle, as well as magazines, ammunition and ammunition reloading components.
Scott originally pleaded guilty back in June to one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
