Armed Career Criminal Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison
Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Gregory A. Presnell has sentenced Daniel Nathaniel McCall (53, Sanford) to 15 years in federal prison for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. Due to his multiple felony convictions, McCall qualified for an increased penalty under the Armed Career Criminal Act.
According to court documents, on November 7, 2017, McCall was involved in a dispute with his then-girlfriend. The argument escalated and McCall went inside his home and retrieved a .38-caliber firearm. He then walked outside and discharged the firearm. Shortly thereafter, McCall was arrested by officers from the Daytona Beach Police Department. At the time, McCall had multiple prior felony convictions and therefore was prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Daytona Beach Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Alejandro J. Salicrup.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. In the Middle District of Florida, U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez coordinates PSN efforts in cooperation with various federal, state, and local law enforcement officials.
