An Airmont Village Trustee has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of illegally possessing an unregistered firearm. That’s according to The Journal News. Brian Downey’s plea effectively ends his tenure on the Board. He’ll be sentenced June first. He was arrested in September 2021 and charged with possession of unregistered firearms, federal badges and ID cards. The suspended Ramapo deputy building inspector still faces 11 local charges, and he’s reportedly expected to plea there later this month. Airmont mayor Nathan Bubel appointed Planning Board member Morris Friedman to take over Downey’s seat, which he won in March 2019.
