New Jersey White Supremacists Sentenced on Gun Charges

  • September 12, 2006

Two admitted members of the Hated, a racist skinhead group, were sentenced on charges of selling handguns, rifles and shotguns without a license, and for possession of firearms by previously convicted felons.

Gabriel Carafa, 25, of Pennsville, New Jersey was sentenced on September 8, 2006, to 80 months in federal prison, while his co-defendant, Craig Orler, 29, also of Pennsville, was sentenced on August 29, 2006 to 130 months in federal prison.

Orler admitted in court to meeting with Carafa in May 2005, to arrange the sale of the weapons. Carafa and Orler said that Carafa took 12 firearms from Orler and sold them, with Orler receiving $500 from the sale.

Carafa pleaded guilty in May 2006 to dealing in firearms without a license and possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon. During his plea hearing, Carafa claimed that he sold 11 of the guns to another white supremacist for $1000.

The investigation was a joint effort of  the ATF, the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, and the New Jersey Office of Bias Crime and Community Relations.
