New York Woman Gets Prison in Firearms Case

Dawn Nguyen

(Rochester, New York) The State Supreme Court has sentenced a local woman, Dawn Nguyen, to a prison term of 16 months to 4 years for lying on a firearms transaction form used to buy a shotgun and a semiautomatic rifle, later used to kill two firefighters.
Justice Thomas Moran's decision comes a month after jurors found her guilty of first-degree falsification of a business record and more than a year after a deadly attack on emergency responders on Lake Road in Webster on Christmas Eve 2012.

Prosecutors argued during Nguyen's trial that the guns were bought for her neighbor, William Spengler Jr. — a convicted felon barred from owning guns. Spengler used them 2½ years later to kill two volunteer firefighters in the Christmas Eve ambush.
Nguyen also faces federal firearms charges.

I kind of remember this, but not why she shot firemen?

At the link, she really looks piggy in the pop out photo.
Must be all the pork she ate as a kid.
