Syracuse Man Pleads Guilty to Illegal Gun Possession in Broome Countu
A Syracuse man will be sentenced in January after pleading guilty in Broome County Court to a violent felony count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.
New York State Police chased Daquan Crawford, doing 102 miles an hour on Route 17 in the Town of Windsor on July 25, 2020. Crawford refused to pull over and continued speeding down Route 17 to Interstate 81. He finally crashed into a barrier on the shoulder of Interstate 81 North in the City of Binghamton.
Troopers say a search of Crawford’s vehicle turned up a loaded, .9mm handgun that he did not legally possess.
The Broome County District Attorney’s office says the Syracuse man will be sentenced to five years in New York State Prison to be followed by five years post-release supervision.
