SYRACUSE, N.Y. – A Blossvale man could face up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to possessing two firearms and more than 100 rounds of ammunition as a convicted felon.
Joseph W. Cromp Sr., 46, admitted to possessing a Rohm .22 caliber revolver and an AK-47 style semiautomatic rifle, as well as 113 rounds of rifle ammunition. The items were seized when state police executed a search warrant at Cromp’s home in October of 2019. The search warrant was issued after he had an altercation with another man earlier that evening.
Cromp was convicted of second-degree attempted assault in Oneida County Court in 2001.
He is scheduled to be sentenced in October. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and three years of supervised release.
As part of his guilty plea, Cromp will also forfeit the firearms and ammunition seized during the search of his home.
