Florida Jail Prison Felon Deuntay Robertson Florida man

A Florida man has been sentenced to 6 years in federal prison for possessing a firearm and ammunition as a convicted felon.

The court also ordered the man, Deuntay Robertson, 30, Sarasota, to forfeit a Bersa Thunder 380 CC, .380 caliber pistol, and four rounds of ammunition.

Robertson pleaded guilty on March 11, 2022.

According to court files, on February 9, 2021, law enforcement officers were working an undercover operation in Sarasota. Robertson approached the undercover law enforcement vehicle and offered to sell the undercover officers cocaine base.

Robertson instructed the undercover officers to meet him around the corner.

Two uniformed law enforcement officers approached and detained Robertson as he went to meet the undercover officers. The officers conducted a pat-down search of Robertson and recovered a loaded firearm, a digital scale, cocaine base, and eutylone.

Robertson later confessed to possessing the firearm. At the time of this offense, Robertson had multiple prior felony convictions and therefore is prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Sarasota Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Charlie D. Connally.

This case was prosecuted as part of the joint federal, state, and local Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts.
