CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Press Release) - United States Attorney Bob Murray announced today that ANTWOINE WILLIAMSON, 31, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, was sentenced for being a felon in possession of a firearm by United States District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal on January 18, 2022. He received 30 months’ imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment.

On March 11, 2021, Williamson fired three shots into the air in a residential neighborhood in Cheyenne, during an argument with his girlfriend. Police were dispatched to the incident and arrested Williamson.

“This is a prime example of why it is illegal for felons to possess firearms,” said United States Attorney Bob Murray. “We appreciate the investigative work of the Cheyenne Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, which aided in a successful conviction.”

Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan C. Coppom prosecuted the case
