BOSTON MAN CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO STATE PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY SELLING AND POSSESSING FIREARMS

BOSTON MAN CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO STATE PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY SELLING AND POSSESSING FIREARMS

BOSTON  A Boston man has been convicted by a jury and sentenced to three to four years in state prison in connection with illegally selling and possessing firearms, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
Canez Tout-Puissant, 42, of Boston, was convicted Thursday after a two-day jury trial in Suffolk Superior Court on the charges of Possession of a Rifle (one count) Possession of a Firearm (one count) and Possession of Ammunition (two counts). He later pleaded guilty to being an armed career criminal and was sentenced by Judge Jeffrey Locke to three to four years in state prison.
The charges stem from a long-running investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) into Tout-Puissant for selling illegal firearms. The investigation revealed that Tout-Puissant illegally sold a rifle, a pistol and ammunition to an undercover police officer in a car in Mattapan.
AG Healey is committed to putting an end to irresponsible and illegal gun use and sales in Massachusetts and is working with partners in law enforcement to get guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Cesar Vega and Jessica Frattaroli, both of AG Healey’s Criminal Bureau. The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Boston Police and Brockton Police.
