SIOUX CITY -- A felon and meth user who was in possession of a stolen firearm was sentenced Thursday to more than five years in federal prison.
According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, 30-year-old Marc Gibbons of Sanborn, Iowa, was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand to 63 months' imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.
Gibbons entered a guilty plea April 17 to possession of a firearm by a felon and to unlawful use of a controlled substance.
The sentence stems from a March 9, 2017, incident in which Gibbons, who was on state parole at the time, was found to be in possession of a .45 caliber handgun. The gun was one of several that had been stolen in a previous burglary.
