ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The verdict is in for the estranged husband of former Mayor Lovely Warren.

A jury found Tim Granison not guilty of felony criminal possession of a firearm and endangering a child.

Granison, however, was found guilty of endangering a child with respect to a legal rifle that was in the couple’s home—a misdemeanor charge.

He was also convicted of violating a city code for not securing the weapon in the home.

Granison was arrested after the home he owned with the former mayor was raided by State Police back in May of 2021.

The husband of Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren was arrested as part of a seven-month drug investigation that included wiretaps and the arrests of five other people.

Law enforcement seized three firearms, one semi-automatic rifle, over two kilos of powder and crack cocaine and over $100,000 in cash.

Two of the guns were found at the mayor’s house. An unregistered handgun and loaded magazine as well as a semi-automatic rifle.

In April, Granison pleaded guilty to a drug charge in federal court.

He’s facing just under three years in prison for that.
