The three count indictment against Tan accuses him of illegally receiving a firearm with the intention of using them to commit a crime. and convincing someone else to lie to buy them for him. The crime happened more than two years ago, so for Charlie Tan and his lawyer – there's only one way to describe how they're feeling right now – shocked.

Earlier Saturday, Charlie Tan, Pittsford man dismissed on charges of killing his father, was arraigned on federal gun charges.

Charlie Tan walked into court – his arms and feet were shackled the entire time. He was wearing an orange jumpsuit with 'Cayuga county jail ' printed on the back. He was quiet and polite before the judge.

His lawyer says – Charlie – a Canadian citizen had been living in Canada and was on his way back to the U.S. for a wedding - when he was taken into custody.

In the State's case against Tan, U.S. prosecutors said the weapon used to kill Charlie’s father, Jim Tan, was bought at the Walmart in Cortland – near Cornell where Charlie was a student at the time. Because of his citizenship, he could not buy the gun, so prosecutors say Charlie asked a friend to buy it for him.
