A Cleveland man was sentenced to eight years in prison for illegally having ammunition.
A jury in June convicted Joshua Walker, 34, of one count being a felon in possession of ammunition.
Walker possessed 9 mm Luger shell casings on October 25, 2017, before and during an altercation at a Cleveland bar where Walker shot and killed someone, according to trial testimony.
Walker was prohibited from having the ammunition because of a previous conviction for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine, according to the trial testimony.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John C. Hanley following an investigation by the Cleveland Division of Police and the ATF, with assistance from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.
