NH man pleads guilty to possessing firearm after previous felony conviction
CONCORD — A Seabrook man previously convicted of a felony pleaded guilty to possessing a gun Thursday.
Acting U.S. Attorney John J. Farley announced that Pablo Acevedo, 31, of Seabrook, plead guilty to possessing a firearm while prohibited by federal law.
According to court documents, statements made in court and other public records in the case, an investigation began after a gun was recovered in June 2016 in connection with a shooting incident in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
Investigators learned that Acevedo had purchased the gun in a private sale arranged online in October 2014. At the time, Acevedo was a previously convicted felon, and could not legally purchase or possess any firearms.
Documents said Acevedo is scheduled to be sentenced on January 10, 2018.
