Repeat Offender Sentenced To 17+ Years For Unlawful Possession Of A Firearm

WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita man with a record of felony convictions was sentenced Monday to 210 months in federal prison for unlawful possession of a firearm, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Juan Sabino Marquez, Jr., 38, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after felony convictions. In his plea, he admitted that on July 26, 2013, officers of the Wichita Police Department stopped his vehicle for an expired tag. They found a Ruger .380 caliber handgun in the car. At the time, Marquez had eight prior felony convictions and was on parole for a gun violation.

Grissom commended the Wichita Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Metzger for their work on the case.
