Statists love telling us we can’t be trusted with guns, and yet a man that the State trusted to work with criminals with the assumption that he wouldn’t become a criminal, became a criminal.
SCRANTON — When Louis Elmy could no longer afford paying for crack cocaine, the former county prison counselor traded off his personal firearms to drug dealers to feed his addiction, federal prosecutors said Thursday at Elmy’s plea hearing.
Elmy, 51, of Nicholson Street, Wilkes-Barre, entered a guilty plea on charges of possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking and extortion at the William J. Nealon Federal Building. A sentencing will be scheduled at a later date, but Elmy faces a mandatory minimum of five years in prison on the gun charge and up to 20 years in prison on the extortion charge, prosecutors said.
Perhaps the left thinks behind every seemingly law-abiding citizen there’s a criminal waiting to get out.
