30 Years for Assault Weapon Trafficking

Selling an assault weapon to a police informant lands an Atlantic City man in New Jersey State Prison for 30 years.

David J. Albright, 43, was sentenced today in Mays Landing related to his January 31 conviction on five separate counts. He’s required to serve 15 years before parole eligibility.

Albright was originally charged in February 2012. Investigators determined that he sold a 7.62-calibar Arsenal SLR-95 – similar to an AK-47 – to a police informant in Atlantic City in August of the previous year. Prosecutors say that Albright also showed the informant a handgun.

He was convicted of unlawful possession of an assault firearm, unlawful possession of a handgun, unlawful sale of an assault weapon, and two counts of unlawfull possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The judge granted Chief Assistant Prosecutor Cary Shill’s request to have Albright sentenced as a persistent offender. Shill cited an long criminal record including 11 previous convictions.
