He appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith where he was sentenced to 5 years in prison for possession of the firearm and 5 years for possession of 9 rounds of ammunition. The sentences are to run concurrently, so he will spend only 5 years in prison.

In court, Trapp said that he was at home when a friend visited him however, he left his home to run an errand and when he returned, the officers were at his home to conduct the search.
