BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man considered a career criminal will face at least 15 years in prison for possessing a firearm.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Diaz’s history in state court makes him an armed career criminal. His charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison, a maximum of life, a fine of $250,000 or both.
