Lincoln Man Sentenced for Being a User/Addict in Possession of a Firearm

United States Attorney, Deborah R. Gilg, announced that on September 14, 2016, Domonique A. Camacho, 23, of Lincoln, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for possessing firearms while being a user of and/or addicted to marijuana between December 26, 2015, and January 9, 2016.  The charge arose from an investigation into photos posted to Facebook showing Camacho holding two handguns and an SKS rifle.  Camacho was contacted by Lincoln Police officers.  He said the guns belonged to friends, and he admitted holding the guns shown in the Facebook photos at a friend’s residence.   Camacho also admitted he was a daily user of marijuana.

Camacho was arrested on the federal charge on February 22, 2016, and has been detained since that time. Following the completion of his prison term, Camacho will serve two years on supervised release.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln Police Department.
