OMAHA, Neb. -- A firearm-related charge puts an Omaha man in prison for 5 1/2 years.

Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Russell said 41-year-old Marvin Stockdale, of Omaha, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha on Dec. 2, for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Stockdale received 66 months in prison and will have a three-year term of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, officers stopped a vehicle in Omaha that Stockdale was traveling in on Nov. 22, 2021. When Stockdale got out of the vehicle, he began resisting officers and tried fleeing but officers were able to arrest Stockdale. Stockdale was sitting in the front passenger side of the vehicle when they were pulled over and officers found was a Glock 17, 9mm pistol, with an extended magazine in the seat. Stockdale’s DNA was on the pistol.

Officials said Stockdale was not allowed to possess firearms due to four prior felony convictions, including three firearm-related offenses. In May 1997, Stockdale was convicted in Missouri of second-degree murder and armed criminal action. In November 2009, Stockdale was convicted federally in Nebraska for being a felon in possession of a firearm. In May 2019, Stockdale was convicted of attempted possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person in Douglas County.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
