MEDFORD, Ore.—A Medford man with previous felony convictions for his involvement in two Medford area shootings was sentenced to federal prison today after he was found by police in possession of a firearm.
Hunter Talon Marlow, 26, was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison and three years’ supervised release.
According to court documents, on October 20, 2021, a witness contacted law enforcement after observing Marlow actively searching for a person who had shot at him in an attempt to retaliate. Marlow, who was previously convicted and served time in prison for shootings in 2014 and 2017, was prohibited from using or possessing a firearm. Later on October 20th, an officer from the Medford Police Department observed Marlow driving and attempted a felony traffic stop. After initially refusing to comply, Marlow surrendered to offices and was arrested. Officers found a loaded semi-automatic pistol with attached forty-round drum magazine in Marlow’s car.
On February 3, 2022, a federal grand jury in Medford returned an indictment charging Marlow with illegally possessing a firearm and ammunition as a convicted felon. On June 22, 2022, Marlow pleaded guilty to the single charge.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Medford Police Department. It was prosecuted by Marco Boccato, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon.
