LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Springwater woman is preparing for a possible trial on felony weapons possession and sale charges after an investigation by the Livingston County Drug Task Force alleged that she sold a sawn-off shotgun to an undercover officer.
Ashleigh Jones, 23, stands charged with Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the Third Degree, as well as Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree, and if she is convicted at trial, she could face up to seven years in prison.
“I have yet to rule on whether a trial is appropriate and proper,” said Judge Robert Wiggins. “That alone could dispose of this.”
Jones’ defense attorney, Christopher Laragy, requested that Judge Wiggins review what was said at Grand Jury and decide whether it is appropriate.
District Attorney Greg McCaffrey said that pending the judge’s review of the minutes, the case is trial ready, and that he would like to begin contacting witnesses for the possible trial.
