Dawn Nguyen is facing a possible four years in prison after being found guilty of falsifying records to purchase guns for William Spengler.  The weapons were used by Spengler to kill two West Webster firefighters in a Christmas Eve ambush in 2012. 
Spengler was not allowed to own firearms because of a previous felony conviction, and he apparently paid Nguyen one-thousand-dollars for the guns. 
Nguyen was immediately taken into custody after her conviction, and will be sentenced next month.

The Environmental Protection Agency is over stepping its bounds, at least according to Congressman Chris Collins and Genesee County Legislator Shelly Stein.
The issue is over the definition of “navigable waters.”
The EPA is seeking a rule change that would subject even temporary bodies of water like ditches, man-made ponds and even pot holes to the federal Clean Water Act.
Farm Bureau President Dean Norton joined Collins and Stein yesterday in LeRoy to draw attention to the rules which Norton says, the EPA has tried to enact twice before and failed.
Congressman Collins says the change in the EPA regulation could make temporary bodies of water subject to the strict federal regulations that fall under the Clean Water Act and place an unfair burden on farmers.
