LUDLOW — Tyler Pollender-Savery, 28, of Ludlow, was sentenced yesterday in the United States District Court in Rutland to a time-served sentence following his guilty plea to possessing firearms while being an unlawful user of controlled substances.

Chief United States District Judge Geoffrey W. Crawford also ordered Pollender-Savery to serve two years of supervised release.

Court records indicate that on December 10, 2018, Pollender-Savery was arrested and charged in state court in Windsor County with second-degree murder in connection with the homicide of an infant.

However, he was acquitted of these charges following a jury trial in October 2022.

As part of the investigation into the homicide, law enforcement searched Pollender-Savery’s residence and recovered nine firearms belonging to him.

Investigation further established that Pollender-Savery used both cocaine and marijuana in and around the time he possessed these firearms, and that he had assaulted someone with a firearm while using controlled substances.

The case was investigated by the Vermont State Police.
