Omaha Man Sentenced to 144 Months Imprisonment on Firearm Charges

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Jarez Wilson of Omaha, also known as “Turk,” was sentenced on July 11, 2014, to a total of 144 months in prison by United States District Judge Joseph Bataillon. Wilson had previously pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and using a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime.
 
In October 2013, Wilson was arrested in a HIDTA, (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program), sponsored law enforcement initiative that targeted gang violence in Omaha.  During the joint investigation between the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Omaha Police Department, Wilson sold three firearms and over a quarter pound of marijuana to two different felons who were working with law enforcement as cooperating witnesses.    

This case was the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Omaha Police Department.
