Louisiana Man Sentenced to More than 6 Years for Illegal possession of a Firearm

Published April 30, 2021

From the Department of Justice U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Louisiana – Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that Treveon T. Carter, 25, of Shreveport, Louisiana, has been sentenced by United States District Judge Donald E. Walter to 74 months (6 years, 2 months) in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, for illegal possession of a firearm.

On January 24, 2019, law enforcement agents searched Carter’s home in Shreveport and found marijuana, oxycodone, 20 containers of suspected THC, a digital scale and packaging material, cash, and a loaded firearm. Carter admitted to agents that the loaded firearm and drug evidence belonged to him.

Carter has a prior felony conviction for possession with intent to distribute narcotics in 2017 and knew that it was illegal for him to possess a firearm.

The ATF and Shreveport/Caddo Street Level Interdiction Unit conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica D. Cassidy prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. PSN is part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
