Fort Dodge Man to Prison for Violating Supervised Release

A man who violated the terms of his supervised release was sentenced on May 15, 2017, to three years in federal prison.

 

LaMarcus Lamar Gully, 31, from Fort Dodge, Iowa, received the prison term on May 15, 2017, after a number of findings of violations of supervised release.

 

Gully admitted he violated a number of terms of his supervision, including failure to comply with drug testing and committing new law violations, which included State of Iowa convictions, one in December 2015 for assault/domestic abuse and another in October of 2016, for two counts of delivery cocaine to another person.

 

Gully was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Gully was sentenced to 36 months’ imprisonment. Gully was also ordered to serve his federal sentence consecutive to any time served on his State of Iowa sentences. He will not have to serve any term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

 

Gully is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

 

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the United States Probation Office and Fort Dodge Police Department.
