DAVENPORT, IA – A Chicago, Illinois man was sentenced on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, to 92 months in federal prison for being a felon in possession of ammunition.

On October 13, 2020, law enforcement identified Michael Jermaine Hambrick, 38, after responding to a burglary and domestic assault call at a residence in Davenport. Officers had served Hambrick with a No Contact Order earlier, which prohibited him from having contact with a female resident, his former significant other. Hambrick previously entered the residence and stole the female’s firearm and magazines. Late that night, he broke into the residence, struck the female in the face with the firearm, and fled. Once Hambrick left, the female found one of her firearm magazines on the floor, which had Hambrick’s fingerprints on it. Law enforcement also located Hambrick’s vehicle nearby, which contained a second magazine to the female’s firearm. As a convicted felon, Hambrick knew he was prohibited from possessing firearms.

Following his prison term, Hambrick was ordered to serve three years of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal of the Southern District of Iowa made the announcement. The Davenport Police Department investigated the case.
