Convicted Felon Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison For Methamphetamine And Firearm Charges

HONOLULU – Ikaika Adams-Feeney, 28, was sentenced today to 10 years of imprisonment for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute and for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Following his incarceration, Adams-Feeney will be on supervised release for 5 years. As part of his sentence, Adams-Feeney also forfeited $3,089 in drug proceeds.

According to court documents and information presented in court, on August 29, 2017, Honolulu Police Department officers arrested Adams-Feeney at the Hawaiian Ebbtide Hotel in Waikiki on an outstanding warrant. Upon his arrest, Adams-Feeney, a convicted felon, was found to be in possession of 43 grams of pure methamphetamine, a loaded 9mm Beretta pistol with numerous rounds of ammunition, drug paraphernalia, and $3,089 in cash.

At sentencing, Senior U.S. District Judge Helen Gillmor commented that Adams-Feeney’s conduct in selling drugs and possessing a loaded firearm was “unacceptable.” 

“As a part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, we are working with our local and federal partners to target for investigation and prosecution repeat offenders and the most violent criminals in Hawaii,” said U.S. Attorney Kenji M. Price. “This case is a great example of what we can achieve when we work together to keep our communities safe.”

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made turning the tide of rising violent crime in America a top priority. In October 2017, as part of a series of actions to address this crime trend, Attorney General Sessions announced the reinvigoration of PSN and directed all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to develop a district crime reduction strategy that incorporates the lessons learned since PSN launched in 2001.

The case was investigated by the Honolulu Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Darren Ching.
