AG: NH woman banned from owning firearms pleads guilty to gun charges

CONCORD — Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced Monday that New Hampshire resident Jody Swett pleaded guilty to possessing multiple firearms and ammunition, violating a judge's orders.

According to court documents, Swett pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges back in 2015, placing her on the list of citizens that could not legally own a firearm or ammunition.

Police say Swett bought a Ruger pistol in Manchester for $375 in July of 2016. In another private transaction in Hillsborough in October of 2016, police believe Swett bought a shotgun for $250 and a bulletproof vest.

After investigators conducted a Swett’s residence in February of 2017, the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized two .22 caliber rifles, a 9 mm pistol and more than 100 rounds of ammunition, police said.

Swett is scheduled to be sentenced on October 25, 2017.
