An illegal alien living in Utica will spend two years in jail for illegal possession of a firearm and possession of false identification documents.

41-year old Hamlet De La Rosa, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Syracuse.

The U.S Attorney's Office says De La Rosa admitted that at the time of his arrest in April 2016, he had an unloaded 12 gauge shotgun under the mattress of his bed.

He also admitted possessing false documents, including a Puerto Rico birth certificate, a social security card and New York state driver's license, all in the name of another person.

De La Rosa will also serve three years of supervised release.
