Lincoln Man Sentenced for User/Addict in Possession of Firearm

United States Attorney, Deborah R. Gilg, announced that on January 20, 2017, Jetwan G. Williams, 22, of Lincoln, was sentenced to time served, (six days in custody) and three years of supervised release for being a user or addict in possession of a firearm. The three-year supervised release term includes 90 days of home confinement. Williams was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment.

 

The charge arose from an investigation into a photo posted to Facebook by Williams which showed Williams holding an SKS rifle and a handgun. In the photo, a shotgun was shown hanging on the wall behind Williams. The photo was taken at the Lincoln residence of one of Williams’ friends, and all the firearms belonged to that friend. At the time the photo was posted, in January of 2016, Williams was a user of marijuana, making it unlawful for him to possess firearms.

 

This case was investigated by the Lincoln Police Department.
