Wichita Street Gang Member Sentenced for Federal Firearm Violation

WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita street gang member with a prior felony conviction for robbery was sentenced Wednesday to 17 months in federal prison for possessing a firearm, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Adonis W. Freeman, also known as Ad Koli, 32, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Freeman, a documented member of the Bloods, admitted in his plea that he had a Glock Model 27 handgun on the floor next to him when agents served a search warrant at his residence. Evidence in support of the search warrant included a video on social media in which Freeman was seen with a gun sticking out of his pocket.

McAllister commended the Wichita Police Department, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch for their work on the case.
