Robert Guerrero's firearm possession charge dropped, pleads guilty to disorderly conduct

Jeff Bottari

Robert Guerrero got a load off of his mind today, as firearm possession charges in New York were dropped, with the fighter pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.

Robert Guerrero won't be going to jail, and won't be spending valuable career time out of the boxing world, as the fighter's firearm possession charges were dropped today in New York. Guerrero, 30, pled guilty to disorderly conduct, paying a $250 fine, and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service, which he will be allowed to do in his home state of California.

"I'm pleased that the District Attorney's Office considered my case carefully and resolved it fairly," said Guerrero. "I never intended to violate New York law, but I know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse. Lesson learned. I'm happy this incident is behind me and looking forward to returning to the ring as well as serving my community as ordered by the court."

Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO) was arrested on March 28 at JFK airport after attempting to check a firearm. He was licensed to carry the gun, which was unloaded and in a locked box, in California, but New York does not accept licenses from other states.

Guerrero had been in New York for a media appearance to promote his May 4 fight with Floyd Mayweather, which he lost by unanimous decision in Las Vegas.
