Interesting, because it's supposed to be charged out as a Class E felony. The news has been silent on his sentencing.

He pled guilty to a Misdemeanor back on 5-27.

Here is a read on the case and the charges. This is from April.

Perhaps [T]he prosecutor or the judge has the power to downgrade a felony charge to a misdemeanor, and Mr. Ferguson's attorney persuaded him/her to do so in exchange for a guilty plea.

Hopefully someone who's familiar with NYS laws regarding criminal procedure will chime in.

Thanks for the clarification; I had looked at the link, but I had not seen the June 5th followup due to a silly oversight.

You see, the vast majority of "anti-gun" people are not really anti-gun. They're all for guns for police, and for private security to protect them and theirs, and for themselves.

They're actually just elitists - they want guns for themselves, but not "for all of you other little peon people out there."
