US Attorney for Delaware David Weiss securing the guilty plea from Jon Henry of Dover earlier this month. In 2015, Henry was first convicted of getting people with clean criminal records to purchase guns he otherwise would not have been able to get. Last year, while on supervised release Henry orchestrated another straw purchase for himself.
