Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announces that 33-year-old Jaquon Snell of Buffalo has been sentenced by Erie County Court Judge Kenneth Case to a determinate sentence of 7 years in prison followed by 5 years of post-release supervision. He was sentenced as a second violent felony offender.

On September 11, 2018, parole officers found the defendant in possession of a loaded pistol, located under a mattress, while conducting a routine search at his residence on Durham Avenue in the City of Buffalo.

Snell pleaded guilty, as charged, to one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree, a Class “C” violent felony, in July 2019.

DA Flynn commends the New York State Division of Parole for their work in the investigation.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Brian D. Langenfeld of the DA’s Tactical Prosecution Unit.
