News10NBC obtains mug shot of Dawn Nguyen

News10NBC has obtained the mug shot of Dawn Nguyen from the Monroe County Jail.

Nguyen was found guilty on Tuesday of falsifying business records and taken into custody until her sentencing in May because the judge felt she was a flight risk.

Prosecutors say Nguyen lied on the paperwork she filled out in order to purchase two guns for convicted felon William Spengler. Spengler killed firefighters Mike Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka and injured two others on Christmas Eve 2012 in West Webster.

Nguyen is looking at a range from probation to four years in state prison. She also is facing charges in federal court and could be sentenced to more time behind bars if convicted there.

Greece woman found guilty in connection with West Webster tragedy

There was a guilty verdict Tuesday for the woman who bought the guns that were used to kill two firefighters and injure two others in the line of duty. It was a tragedy that began with a reported car fire and ended with three lives lost.

A jury found Dawn Nguyen guilty on a charge of falsifying business records. The jury's decision meant that they felt Nguyen filled out the paperwork to buy the guns used in the West Webster tragedy and intended to give them to the suspected gunman, William Spengler. Police say William Spengler set a fire outside his home on Lake Road in Webster and then used the guns to fire at four West Webster firefighters who responded to calls for that fire. Two firefighters, veteran Mike Chiapperini and 19-year-old Tomasz Kaczowka, were killed. Ted Scardino and Joseph Hofstetter survived the attack. Spengler's sister, Cheryl Spengler, was also killed.
