Jamaica resident Quame Truitt was sentenced to five years in prison Monday after pleading guilty earlier this month to threatening a transgender woman with an illegal firearm last fall, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz. Truitt, 24, of 162nd Street, pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Frances Wang. According to court records, on Sept. 5, 2021, the woman was walking along Truitt’s street in Jamaica just after 6 p.m when she encountered the defendant. When the two were near each other, Truitt reached toward his waist and told the victim, “You don’t belong here.”
