Montgomery Man Sentenced to 6.5 Years in Prison Following Federal Gun and Drug Convictions

           Montgomery, Alabama –        On October 27, 2021, Daryl Tyrone Gray, 38, from Montgomery, Alabama, was sentenced to 78 months in prison, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release, announced Acting United States Attorney Sandra J. Stewart.

           According to court records and the factual basis contained in the plea agreement, on February 20, 2019, the Montgomery Police Department responded to a shots-fired call. When officers arrived, they made contact with Gray and found him in possession of a .40 caliber handgun. Gray is a convicted felon and is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

           Later in 2019, law enforcement suspected Gray was engaging in the illegal sale of controlled substances. On April 11, 2019, agents discovered that Gray had made arrangements with another individual to purchase a quantity of cocaine in the parking lot of a Montgomery restaurant and was subsequently arrested.   

           Gray pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance on November 19, 2020.

           This case was investigated by the Montgomery Police Department, the Department of Homeland Security, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Assistant United States Attorney Russell T. Duraski prosecuted the case.
