U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Iowa

DAVENPORT, Iowa – An Iowa City man was sentenced yesterday to 60 months in federal prison for making false statements during purchases of firearms and unlawfully possessing firearms while a drug user.

According to public court documents and evidence presented at sentencing, Kiante Demarr Hough Green, 23, purchased numerous firearms which he provided to individuals he knew to be prohibited from possessing firearms, and which were then used in the commission of violence. At the time of Green’s firearm purchases and during his possession of firearms, he was an unlawful user of controlled substances, and engaged in the distribution of marijuana.

After completing his term of imprisonment, Green will be required to serve 3 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. This case was investigated by the Iowa City Police Department.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
