DAVENPORT, IOWA – A Davenport man, Brenton Mon’Shae Jones, age 24, was sentenced on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, by United States District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose to 46 months in prison for Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Receipt and Possession of a Machinegun, and Receipt and Possession of an Unregistered Machinegun. This sentence is to be served consecutively to a supervised release revocation sentence of 18 months imposed the same day. Jones was ordered to serve three years of supervised release to follow his prison sentence and pay $300.00 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.
On August 12, 2020, Jones was in possession of a Glock 23 .40 caliber pistol. The pistol had a switch affixed to it that converted the Glock pistol from semi-automatic to fully automatic. As a result, the Glock pistol functioned as a fully automatic machinegun. Jones was prohibited from possessing any firearms due to prior felony convictions including a 2018 conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa for the offenses of felon in possession of a firearm and possession of heroin with intent to distribute. On August 12, 2020, Jones was serving a period of supervised release associated with that conviction.
