Stilwell Resident Sentenced for Federal Firearms Crime

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Brandon Lee Workman, age 37, of Stilwell, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 72 months in prison for one count of possessing a firearm after a felony conviction and 72 months in prison for one count of possessing ammunition after a felony conviction. These sentences will run concurrently.

The charges arose from investigations by the Adair County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

On August 10, 2022, Workman pleaded guilty to the offenses. According to investigators, law enforcement officers responding to an emergency call on May 9, 2022, discovered Workman in possession of a revolver and .38 Special ammunition despite a prior conviction for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year.

The Honorable Rodney W. Sippel, Senior U.S. District Judge in the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Missouri, sitting by assignment, presided over the hearing in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Workman will remain in custody of the U.S. Marshal pending transportation to a designated United States Bureau of Prisons facility to serve a non-paroleable sentence of incarceration.

Assistant United States Attorneys Zachary Parsons and Kevin Gross represented the United States.
