There’s been an outcome in a high-profile Seneca County Court case involving weapons charges.

Abraham “Anthony” Shammah, 54, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a weapon on last week in Seneca County Court.


Shammah is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 30 by Judge Barry Porsch to a two-year prison term, which will be followed by two years of parole, according to the Finger Lakes Times.

Waterloo police arrested Shammah in April 2021 after executing a search warrant at his West Elisha Street residence, leading to the seizure of several handguns.

In addition to the handguns, the police also confiscated gun magazines and a substantial amount of ammunition during the search.
