Oran Man Sentenced to 188 Months for Unlawful Possession of Firearms

The United States Attorney’s Office announced today that an Oran, Missouri man was sentenced on gun charges.

JERRY L. DANIELS, age 42, was sentenced to 188 months on one felony count of Being a Previously Convicted Felon in Possession of a Firearm. He appeared before United States District Judge Carol E. Jackson.

On November 29, 2010, A Stoddard County deputy responded to the Daniels’ residence in response to a report of an argument between Daniels and his wife. Mrs. Daniels gave the deputy a rifle and told the officer that the firearm belonged to Daniels and that Daniels had two other firearms in their home. Daniels told the officer that the firearm was his and admitted that he had two other firearms in the home. The deputy then recovered the other two firearms.

Daniels had five previous felony convictions and, as a convicted felon, was prohibited from possessing firearms.

This case was investigated by the Stoddard County Sheriff’s Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant United States Attorney Keith D. Sorrell handled the prosecution for the Government.
