Oklahoma City Man Sentenced to 80 Years in Federal Prison After Five Years of Criminal Conduct
OKLAHOMA CITY – Today, DOMINIC EUGENE HUNT, aka "Dime Sack," 26, of Oklahoma City, was sentenced to 80 years in prison on numerous firearms, ammunition, and drug-related charges after five years of criminal conduct, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Robert J. Troester.
On November 6, 2019, a Third Superseding Indictment charged Hunt with nine counts of various firearms, ammunition, and drug-related charges from four separate episodes of criminal conduct spanning from 2014 to 2019. The Third Superseding Indictment charged Hunt with the following: Counts 1 & 5) Drug User in Possession of a Firearm; Count 2) Maintaining a Drug-Involved Premises; Counts 3 & 6) Possession with Intent to Distribute; Counts 4 & 7) Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime; and Counts 8 & 9) Felon in Possession of Ammunition.
On September 4, 2020, Hunt pleaded guilty to Counts 1-3 before the case went to trial. On September 11, 2020, after a four-day trial, the jury returned guilty verdicts on the remaining six counts.
Evidence at trial showed Hunt possessed three different firearms, including an assault rifle, on at least two separate occasions in 2014, in furtherance of his intent to distribute marijuana. Evidence also showed the ammunition Hunt possessed in Count 8 was the ammunition used in a January 2019 shooting, the victim of which survived. Finally, evidence showed the ammunition Hunt possessed in Count 9 was used in a drive-by shooting on February 2, 2019, which resulted in the death of Conilius “Tubby” Wright.
Today, U.S. District Judge David L. Russell sentenced Hunt to serve 80 years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.
This case is the result of investigations by the Oklahoma City Police Department, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives, and Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Oklahoma City Field Division. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jacquelyn M. Hutzell and David McCrary prosecuted the case.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, the Department of Justice’s signature initiative to reduce gun violence and enforce federal firearms laws.
