Six-Time Cedar Rapids Felon Sent to Prison for the Maximum 10 Years for Possessing a Firearm and Ammunition
A convicted felon who possessed a firearm and ammunition on the streets of Cedar Rapids in March was sentenced yesterday to ten years in federal prison, the statutory maximum sentence possible for his crime.
Gregg Morris McGee a/k/a “Jimmy Ray Williams” a/k/a “Mykiel Lewis” a/k/a “Calvin McGee,” age 38, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the prison term after a June 8, 2015, guilty plea to one count of possessing a firearm and ammunition as a felon.
At the guilty plea hearing, McGee admitted that he knowingly possessed a Glock Model 17, 9mm pistol and Remington-Peters 9mm ammunition. At the plea hearing, McGee also admitted to six prior felony convictions in state court for theft in the second degree, forgery, and possession of a simulated controlled substance with intent to deliver.
McGee was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade to 120 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system. McGee is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Vavricek and investigated by the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force.
