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

EUGENE, Ore. – On January 31, 2014, Scott Alan Gorman, 46 years old, was sentenced by U.S. District Chief Judge Ann Aiken to 41 months in federal prison for unlawful possession of a firearm.  Upon his release from prison, Gorman will be on supervised release for three years. 

On January 7, 2013, Gorman made threatening statements about having a firearm and an underground bomb shelter that scared employees at an adult care facility.  The next morning, law enforcement responded to Gorman’s home and found in his bedroom a loaded Bushmaster .223 semi-automatic rifle and four loaded 30-round magazines.  Gorman has a prior felony conviction for unlawful use of a weapon.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Eugene Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan J. Lichvarcik.  The Lane County District Attorney’s Office is also prosecuting Gorman based upon an unrelated alleged assault.
