A 50-year-old Dover man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for weapons charges. Deputy Attorney General Greg Babowal secured the sentence against Jeffrey Crippen, after securing a conviction during a bench trial in November.
Authorities said that Shortly before his arrest, Crippen was released from prison after serving a 20-year sentence for trafficking cocaine and related charges. Crippen, who authorities once again suspected of drug dealing, was arrested in 2015, where police found a loaded pistol in his home.
He was convicted of Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited and Possession of Ammunition by a Person Prohibited, and sentenced by Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Clark to 10 years in prison, followed by 6 months in a halfway house, then 2 years of probation.
