FRESNO, Calif. — Eugene Dajohn Marshall, 31, of Fresno, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Dale A. Drozd to two years and eight months in prison, for being a felon in possession of a firearm, Acting U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.
According to court documents, on Oct. 15, 2019, law enforcement officers were called to a domestic violence disturbance at Marshall’s home. Marshall, a previously convicted felon prohibited by law from possessing firearms and ammunition, was found to be in possession of a loaded firearm and additional rounds of ammunition.
This case was the product of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations and the Fresno Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica A. Massey prosecuted the case.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
