A Buffalo woman pleaded guilty Monday in State Supreme Court to a misdemeanor weapons possession charge after a man concealed an assault weapon in their apartment.
Kiaira McCullough, 22, admitted to criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor.
Her co-defendant, Antuan Yeomas, 27, previously pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
Assistant District Attorney James Mansour said McCullough was allowed to plead to the lesser charge because she provided prosecutors with a statement regarding Yeomas and agreed to testify should his case have gone to trial.
The unloaded assault rifle – with ammunition nearby – was discovered hidden in drywall in an apartment on Dec. 28, 2016, when the Erie County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at an apartment at 471 Fillmore Ave.
Justice Russell P. Buscaglia scheduled sentencing for May 2.
