The Broome County District Attorney’s Office say 35 year old Theodore Cooper was convicted July 13 of violent felony criminal possession of a weapon.

He was arrested July 4, 2017 by Endicott Police and indicted by a Grand Jury last August.

Authorities claimed Cooper knowingly possessed the loaded .380 caliber handgun in a location other than his home or place of business in violation of state law.

Cooper faces up to 15 years in prison.
