TRENTON – A Deputy United States Marshal was convicted in federal court today of illegally obtaining a handgun for a 33-year-old ex-felon and reputed gang member whose prior convictions included aggravated assault and robbery, authorities and court papers said today.

Antoine Dobson, 29 of Irvington, used his position as a Marshal to purchase a semi-automatic handgun last year for Larry Langforddavis, a close personal friend from Hillside, according to Acting U.S. Attorney Ralph J. Marra.

Dobson obtained the weapon, which was loaded with hollow-point bullets, by certifying on a U.S. Marshals’ service letterhead that the gun was for “official use” only, according to Marra.
