Gary Man Sentenced to 92 Months in Prison

HAMMOND- Michael A. Davis, 34 years old, of Gary, Indiana, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Philip P. Simon after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, announced United States Attorney Clifford D. Johnson.

Davis was sentenced to 92 months in prison followed by 2 years of supervised release.

According to documents in the case, in February 2022, law enforcement responded to a 911 call and upon arrival, located Davis. A firearm with an obliterated serial number was also recovered which Davis possessed. Davis’ criminal history revealed he has prior felony convictions for armed robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and was prohibited from possessing the firearm.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Gary Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Kevin F. Wolff and Patrick D. Grindlay.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
