Greenland man who allegedly threatened police pleads guilty to weapons charges
Joshua Nieves, 27, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to charges of felon in possession of a weapon and a felony drug charge as part of a negotiated deal that should send him to state prison for 2½ to 5 years.
His negotiated plea deal includes a suspended 3½ to 7-year prison term on one of the weapons convictions, which could be imposed if he violates his parole.
Deputy County Attorney Tom Reid said Tuesday that tips about Nieves' weapons collection first led them to believe he was keeping a MAC-10 covered in a blanket in his car.
"It was simply a 9mm semi-automatic. It was not even in the same company of the MAC-10," Reid said.
Nieves, who has a 2004 robbery conviction, was making troubling statements to people who later tipped off police, according to court records.
Police also found Nieves in possession of pills containing Lorazepam, Reid said.
His lawyer Charles Bookman asked for a sentencing hearing to happen at a later date so his client would have time to get his affairs in order before being sent to state prison.
