The sentence is for a conviction at trial last year for the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition by a felon.

Donovan was prohibited from possessing firearms due to prior felony convictions.

In March 2021, law enforcement received a tip that Donovan possessed firearms.

Police say Located in Donovan’s Jeep, strapped to the Jeep’s roll bar, was a loaded 20-gauge shotgun, with several rounds of ammunition on and in the weapon.

Additional ammunition was located in the Jeep’s center console.

In addition, a companion 20-gauge shotgun barrel, several shotgun parts, multiple rounds of ammunition, two homemade silencers, and various gun accessories were located in other locations on Donovan’s property.

Donovan has been detained since his March 2021 arrest.

He was on supervised release at the time of the offense following an earlier federal conviction for conspiracy to commit bank robbery and related firearms charges arising out of the February 2007 armed robbery of the Franklin Savings Bank.

The sentence imposed by the Court consists of 110 months for the new firearms offense and 5 months for the violation of supervised release, to be served consecutively.

Donovan will be on a new term of supervised release following his release from Bureau of Prisons custody.
