Acting United States Attorney Steve Butler of the Southern District of Alabama announces that Senior United States District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade sentenced Domonic Marshall to 15 months in prison on September 13, 2017.  Marshall pled guilty on June 14, 2017 to the charge of Possession of Ammunition by a Prohibited Person, violating 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1).
Domonic Marshall is prohibited from possessing ammunition by virtue of being convicted of the felony offense of Burglary 3rd Degree in Mobile County Circuit Court, in December of 2011.

On July 5, 2016, City of Saraland police officers responded to a domestic violence call at the residence of Domonic Marshall. A pregnant female who said she was fleeing the residence met officers. She told the police officers that Marshall kept a .45 caliber pistol, and a large rifle, inside the residence.

Other officers, who were responding to the domestic violence call, were able to get a description of Marshall and the vehicle he was traveling in.  They pursued Marshall, who attempted to flee from them. Marshall was ultimately apprehended and arrested for the domestic violence.

Law enforcement officers interviewed the female victim. She told officers that when Marshall found out she had called the police, he moved the .45 caliber pistol and the rifle out of the residence so he would not be caught with them.

Saraland Police Department obtained a search warrant for the residence of Domonic Marshall to look for the .45 caliber pistol and the rifle.  The police executed the search warrant on July 13, 2017. During the search, officers did not find either firearm, but did recover sixteen .22 caliber rounds of ammunition and one 12-gauge shotgun round.  They also located, and seized, eighty-five .22 caliber rounds of ammunition in a separate part of Marshall’s residence.
When officers informed Marshall that they had located live ammunition in his residence, Marshall stated that the .22 rounds had been in there forever, and that he had had the ammunition for approximately 4 years. Marshall also admitted being a convicted felon.

Senior United States District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade also sentenced Marshall to serve three years of supervised release at the conclusion of his prison sentence.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Mobile, Alabama Field Office, and Saraland Police Department investigated this case.  Assistant United States Attorney Christopher Baugh prosecuted the case for the Southern District of Alabama.
