Robert Guerrero - Firearm Charges Dismissed in NYC

NEW YORK, NY - Early today, Six-Time and Four-Division World Champion Robert Guerrero appeared in New York State Supreme Court for Queens County where all firearm possession charges were dismissed in connection with his March 28 arrest at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.  Guerrero pled guilty to disorderly conduct, a violation and not a crime, was fined $250 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service which he will be allowed to perform in his home state of California.

Guerrero was arrested on March 28 when checking in his luggage at JFK while returning to training camp in Las Vegas following a press tour in connection with his May 4 fight against Floyd Mayweather.  As he was checking in, he made sure to advise authorities that they needed to be aware that he had a firearm, which was unloaded and in a locked safe box within his luggage which was to be checked.  Guerrero was carrying no ammunition and was within his legal right to possess such firearm in the state in which he resides.

"I'm pleased that the District Attorney's Office considered my case carefully and resolved it fairly," said Guerrero.  "I never intended to violate New York law, but I know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse.  Lesson learned.  I'm happy this incident is behind me and looking forward to returning to the ring as well as serving my community as ordered by the court."
