October 29, 2018

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Connecticut say two men have pleaded guilty to charges related to the illegal manufacture and sale of machine guns.

Authorities say 39-year-old Sean Day of Torrington made weapons including AK-47 style and AR-style guns and arranged with 69-year-old George Jaiman of Bridgeport to sell them. Neither man had a license to deal firearms.

The U.S. attorney’s office announced Monday that Dey pleaded guilty last week in Hartford federal court to charges including conspiracy to engage unlawfully in the sale of firearms. Jaiman pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a machine gun.

The two men are scheduled to be sentenced in January.
