STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 50-year-old Stamford man was sentenced to four years in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to gun charges, U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly said Monday.
Frank Green Sr. was also sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to three years of supervised release. Green pleaded guilty March 24 to being a felon in possession of a firearm, and to violating the terms and conditions of his supervised release from a prior federal conviction.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in August and September 2013, Stamford Police made two purchases of cocaine from Green in the vicinity of a home on Amelia Place where he had been residing. On Oct. 4, 2013, police executed a search warrant at the home and seized three small baggies of cocaine, a scale, packaging material, a cutting agent and a loaded .38-caliber revolver from Green's bedroom.
His criminal history includes several state felony convictions and a federal narcotics felony conviction. In June 2011, Green was sentenced by Chatigny to 39 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for his role in a cocaine distribution conspiracy. He was released from federal prison in April 2013.
On Friday, Chatigny sentenced Green to 37 months of imprisonment for illegally possessing the firearm and a consecutive 11-month prison term for the supervised release violation.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Stamford Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert M. Spector.
