Manassas woman bought 31 handguns to resell for profit
Kimberly Yvette Dinkins, 44, pleaded guilty to dealing firearms without a license and faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison when she is sentenced May 3, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
The plea was accepted by U.S. District Judge Claude M. Hilton.
According to a statement of facts filed in court, Dinkins purchased 31 handguns on three consecutive weekends from Nov. 17 through Dec. 1, 2012. She purchased 13 handguns at a gun show in Chantilly, nine at a gun show in Richmond and nine at a gun show in Hampton. Dinkins was not a federally licensed dealer of firearms; however, she was unemployed and purchased the handguns with the intention of selling them for profit.
This investigation is being conducted by ATF’s Washington Field Division. Special Assistant U.S. Attorney L. Rush Atkinson and Virginia Assistant Attorney General and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Marc J. Birnbaum are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.
