Springfield man gets prison time in guns, drug cases
Jun. 22, 2016
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Springfield man has been sentenced to 10 to 12 years in state prison in two different cases involving guns and drugs.
The Republican reports (http://bit.ly/28MF9NM ) a Hampden Superior Court judge on Tuesday accepted the sentence recommendation from prosecutors and the defense for 35-year-old Edwin Guzman.
Guzman pleaded guilty in the first case to cocaine trafficking and carrying a firearm without a license. In the second case, he pleaded guilty to carrying a firearm without a license and illegal possession of ammunition.
The charges stem from a June 2, 2015 incident in which prosecutors say state police stopped Guzman and found drugs in his car. Prosecutors say Guzman fled from police after his car was flagged down on June 9, 2015. They say a gun was found in his vehicle.
