A Buffalo man pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Antonio Eldridge, 28, faces a maximum prison term of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,00 when he is sentenced Dec. 2. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brendan T. Cullinane said Eldridge, who was arrested in March and indicted in May, was charged with displaying a firearm to children in Buffalo. As a convicted felon he is barred from possessing a firearm.
During an investigation of the March 11 incident, Buffalo police officers found Eldridge hiding in a basement crawl space of the home of the children.
