A Sayreville man received a three-and-half year prison sentence for committing a gun offense in Paterson.
Evan Blozen, 20-year-old, has to serve the 42-month sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
Passaic County Superior Court judge Joseph A. Portelli sentenced Blozen on Thursday.
On April 28, police arrested Blozen with a handgun on Pearl and Carroll Street. He was held at the Passaic County Jail since the arrest. He is getting 104 days of credit for spending time in jail.
Blozen was charged with four weapons offenses, including for having hollow point bullets. He pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a weapon as part of a plea deal. He was out on parole at the time of the arrest.
Blozen worked as a driver for UPS and FedEx before he was arrested with the handgun.
“I would suggest that you get back to them when you can Mr. Blozen because all I see around my neighborhood are UPS, FedEx, and everything else — you’ll be working constantly. I don’t think you would have time to get in trouble again,” said Portelli during the sentencing.
Blozen has a previous juvenile criminal record.
