United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Nunn to 14 years in prison for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine, fentanyl, and marijuana and conspiring to violate federal firearms laws.  Hill-Gaines was sentenced to 90 months in prison for conspiring to violate federal firearms laws.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After Nunn’s release from prison, he will begin a five-year term of supervised release.  After Hill-Gaines’s release, he will begin a three-year term of supervised release.  Nunn is also forfeiting $13,180 that was identified as drug trafficking proceeds.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Omaha Police Department, and the Bellevue Police Department.
