Thompson was the original and LEGAL owner of this weapon. He sold it for drugs and it become a Community firearm.
And he does ONE year for his role in the crime....
Driven by addiction, Thompson apparently did not consider just how his legally purchased semiautomatic rifle would be used when in the hands of drug dealers. Now 36, he is free after a yearlong prison sentence.
"I must live with this thought of an innocent little girl with a chance for a good life gunned down without a chance," Thompson wrote in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Charles Siragusa before his 2011 sentencing.
"This is because I gave a street thug a gun."
