DAVENPORT, Iowa—On July 20, 2020, United States District Court Chief Judge John A. Jarvey sentenced Isaiah Henderson, age 27, of Davenport, to 10 years in prison, the statutory maximum, after he was found guilty of felon in possession of a firearm, announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum. Henderson was ordered to serve a period of supervised release of three years to follow his prison terms and pay a $100 special assessment payable to the Crime Victims’ Fund. There is no parole in the federal system.

In February 2020, a jury found Henderson guilty of the charge.

Officers immediately made contact with Henderson and subsequently located a loaded firearm, which he had attempted to hide inside of the Kwik Shop. Henderson has a history of assaults, distributing drugs, eluding, and interfering with officers. Henderson was on parole through the State of Iowa for approximately one month at the time he committed this offense.

This case was investigated by the Davenport Police Department and prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
