Graham Henson Defends Foolish Firearm Buyer

Tue, 26 Mar 2013

Baldev Sangha, 44, has been given a 15-month jail sentence, suspended for two years and 100 hours unpaid work after pleading guilty to possession of a prohibited firearm and having ammunition without a certificate.
Sangha brought the .22 gas-powered pistol along with 3 other firearms and 28 rounds of 9mm ammunition from a car boot sale with the intention of displaying them in a “boys room” at his Wolverhampton home.
Police discovered the weapon whilst visiting his home on an unrelated matter.
Graham Henson, defending, said: “We are dealing with a half-soaked, silly man who was behaving like a big kid buying what he thought were replica guns for him to play with like toys. This is a crime committed out of ignorance.”
