Connecticut Gun Shop Owner Faces Sentencing
The owner of a gun shop that legally sold a rifle to the Newtown school shooter’s mother is facing sentencing for unrelated federal firearms violations.
David Laguercia is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in Bridgeport. He pleaded guilty to transfer of a firearm before completing a background check and failure to maintain firearms records.
Prosecutors say an investigation found about 300 examples of false or misleading information in Riverview Gun Sales records.
