District Court Judge Curtis V. Gomez on Wednesday sentenced Ja’Moi Khadeem Corraspe, 23, to 48 months in prison for conspiracy to ship firearms with obliterated serial numbers, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
In the release, U.S. Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special agent in charge Carlos A. Canino said Gomez also sentenced Corraspe to serve three years of supervised release, 600 hours of community service and to pay a $100 special assessment.
Corraspe pleaded guilty Sept. 14 to conspiracy to ship firearms with obliterated serial numbers. According to the plea agreement filed with the court, between Aug 6, 2013, and Oct. 7, 2013, Corraspe conspired with other individuals to mail two firearms with obliterated serial numbers from Jacksonville, Fla., to St. Thomas. Corraspe is not a federally licensed firearm dealer and is not authorized to possess the firearm in the Virgin Islands.
This case was investigated by ATF. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sigrid M. Tejo-Sprotte.
