Previously convicted felon sentenced to 6 years in prison for possessing firearms

DAYTON, Ohio – Davon Andre Winn, 36, of Dayton, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 72 months in prison for possessing two loaded firearms after being convicted of a felony crime.

 

According to court documents, in November 2020, while Winn was on parole, Ohio Adult Parole Authority conducted a search of the residence in which Winn spent a majority of his time.

 

They discovered an assault rifle and a handgun. Both firearms were loaded.

 

Winn had prior felony convictions, including kidnapping, aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon, burglary and various other violent offenses. These convictions legally prohibited Winn from possessing a firearm or ammunition.

 

“We take felon-in-possession cases seriously, especially when they involve defendants using military-style weapons as street guns,” said U.S. Attorney Kenneth L. Parker. “These firearms, with their high-capacity magazines and ability to fire repeatedly without reloading, continue to exact a great cost in senseless bloodshed and tragedy in communities across the country.”

 

The defendant pleaded guilty in his federal case in October 2021.

 

Kenneth L. Parker, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio; J. William Rivers, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Cincinnati Division; Dayton Police Chief Kamran Afzal and other members of the Dayton Police Department’s Safe Streets Task Force announced the sentence imposed by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Thomas M. Rose. Assistant United States Attorney Laura I. Clemmens represented the United States at sentencing.
