Sioux Falls Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Prohibited Possession of a Firearm

SIOUX FALLS - United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced today that U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier has sentenced a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man, convicted of Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person. The sentencing took place on May 6, 2024, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Uver Revolorio-Hernandez, age 50, was sentenced to seven years and three months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release. He was ordered to pay $100 as a statutorily required special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Revolorio-Hernandez was indicted for Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person by a federal grand jury in September 2023. He pleaded guilty to on January 23, 2024.

On July 31, 2023, Uver Revolorio-Hernandez was arrested after threatening and shooting at a neighbor and the neighbor’s six-year-old child. Revolorio-Hernandez shot at them four times from his vehicle while he drove away from the scene. Law enforcement located two spent 9mm shell casings outside of the victim’s residence and one bullet inside the victim’s residence, which had penetrated three walls of the home.

When law enforcement officers encountered Revolorio-Hernandez in his vehicle, he was intoxicated and in possession of a loaded Hi-Point 9mm handgun with an obliterated serial number and two spent 9mm casings.

Revolorio-Hernandez is prohibited from possessing a firearm because he is an illegal alien and because he is a convicted felon; specifically, Revolorio-Hernandez was convicted of Assault – 2nd Degree Dangerous Weapon (Felony) on March 17, 2008, in Scott County, Minnesota.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
This case was investigated by the City of Sioux Falls Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Elizabeth Ebert prosecuted the case.

Revolorio-Hernandez was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to continue serving his sentence.
