Contact: Jan Sharp, Criminal Chief
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Leandre R. Jennings, III, 24, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced in Omaha today by United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp, to serve 51 months in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm, in violation of federal law. Jennings was convicted of felony flight to avoid arrest in 2009. In addition to his prison term, he will serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison.
At 11:00 a.m. on November 10, 2010, Omaha Police stopped a car for excessive window tint. On the rear passenger floorboard was a loaded Rohm .38 caliber revolver. Subsequent scientific testing established that the drivers DNA was not on the firearm, but Jennings DNA was.
This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
