The Journal Gazette

A Rome City man will serve 180 months in prison and two years of supervised release for possessing a firearm after having prior felony offenses, the U.S. attorney's office for northern Indiana said today.

It said court documents say that from Feb. 26, 2015, to April 1, 2015, Jeremy Handshoe was in possession of a firearm after having been convicted of drug offenses or violent felonies in Noble Superior Court in 1997, 1998 and 2007.

The three felony convictions qualified Handshoe, 39, to be considered an armed career criminal, the statement said, with a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison.
