Manassas woman to serve 18 months for illegally selling handguns
Kimberly Yvette Dinkins, 44, will follow her prison sentence with two years of supervised release, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
According to court documents, Dinkins, who was not a federally licensed firearms dealer, purchased 31 handguns on three consecutive weekends from Nov. 17 through Dec. 1, 2012. She purchased the firearms at three gun shows in Chantilly, Richmond and Hampton.
The firearms bought and sold by Dinkins were eventually recovered from juveniles and felons who used the weapons during drug trafficking schemes, according to court documents.
Specifically, on Nov. 30, 2012, law enforcement in Prince George’s County, Md., recovered one of the firearms from a 20-year-old Maryland man during a narcotics investigation. On Dec. 12, 2012, they recovered a second firearm bought and sold by Dinkins from a 19-year-old Maryland man, again during a narcotics investigation. Both Maryland men have pleaded guilty to possession of firearms-related charges.
