Omaha Man Sentenced for Firearm and Drug Trafficking Crimes

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

Acting United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Jacobe Hollingsworth, 25, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and possessing a firearm in furtherance of that crime.  United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Hollingsworth to 74 months of imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a five-year term of supervised release. 

On January 13, 2022, police and probation officers went to Hollingsworth’s Omaha residence and located approximately 50 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, a digital drug scale, approximately 141 grams of marijuana, two handguns, and a drum magazine designed to hold approximately 50 rounds of ammunition.  Hollingsworth attempted to flee, but officers stopped him.  Officers also located approximately $6,671 in United States currency which Hollingsworth agreed to forfeit.   

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Omaha Police Department and is part of the Safe Streets Task Force.  Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
