Vian Man Sentenced for Felony Possession of Firearm


The U. S. Attorney's Office in Muskogee announced this week that Dustin Floyd Johnson, age 33, of Vian was sentenced to 57 months imprisonment, and 3 years supervised release for Felon In Possession Of Firearm and Ammunition.

The charge arose from an investigation by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Indictment alleged that on or about April 19, 2017 Johnson, having been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, possessed a firearm and ammunition which had been shipped and transported in interstate commerce.

“This joint investigation by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and the ATF is a great example of what can be accomplished when agencies from state, local, federal, and tribal jurisdictions work together with the common goal of protecting the public,” United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said. “As a result of their work, the dedicated members of this office were able to enforce the federal statute that prohibits felons from possessing firearms and as a result make the Eastern District a safe place to live and work.”

U. S. District Judge Ronald A. White presided over the hearing. Assistant U. S. Attorney Dean Burris represented the United States. 

The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
