SIOUX CITY -- A Sioux City man has been sentenced to more than nine years in federal prison for illegal possession of a gun.

Brandon Esquibel, 26, was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court to 110 months in prison. He pleaded guilty in April to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Esquibel discarded a gun while fleeing from law enforcement officers on Oct. 30. He was subsequently tased and arrested. Authorities later determined the loaded pistol Esquibel had possessed was reported as stolen.
