A career criminal from Binghamton will spend nine years in prison for his 2021 conviction for possession of firearms.
Broome County District Attorney Michael Korchak said James Durham, 43, was sentenced on January 18 after being convicted in July 2021 of criminal possession of a weapon. Korchak says Durham was found in unlawful possession of a .22 caliber revolver on Court Street in July 2020.
Current affairs records show Durham was arrested on June 21, 2018 for a robbery and shooting on Saint John Avenue. Durham’s record goes back several years before that.
In the 2018 incident, Binghamton police say Durham and Jordan Dupray, who is now 31, got into an argument with a 32-year-old man they knew and tried to rob him and shot at least a shot. The victim was injured in the arm.
Durham was arrested on Glenwood Avenue and charged with attempted robbery. Dupray was located days later and charged with multiple counts, including assault and attempted robbery.
At sentencing on January 18, 2022, Durham is to serve 5 years of post-release supervision after his 9 years in New York State prison.
