WINOOSKI — A Winooski man has been sentenced today after pleading guilty to receiving a firearm while under indictment for multiple state felony offenses, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.
Edward Lamson, 23, was found in possession of the firearm in May 2022, following a single-vehicle accident in South Burlington.
At the time of his arrest, Lamson was facing eight state felony charges, including multiple counts of burglary, and several simple assault charges.
Chief U.S. District Court Judge Geoffrey W. Crawford sentenced Lamson to time served, following approximately nine months in prison.
He is also required to undergo a three-year period of supervised release.
In delivering the sentence, the Court took into consideration not only the gravity of Lamson’s offense, but also his history of mental health issues.
The U.S. Attorney acknowledged the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for their efforts in the investigation.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Eugenia Cowles and Michael Drescher represented the government in the case, while Michael J. Straub, Esq. served as Lamson’s attorney.
