Homedale man sentenced to 100 months in prison for unlawfully possessing firearm
Adam Lee Cook, 28, of Homedale, Idaho, was sentenced in federal court today to 100 months in prison for unlawful possession of a firearm. Cook pleaded guilty to the charge in April 2011.
According to the plea agreement, Cook was the driver and sole occupant of a vehicle stopped on June 6, 2010, by Caldwell police officers for traffic violations. With probable cause, officers searched the vehicle and discovered a Remington 12 gauge shotgun in the trunk. Cook admitted that he had possession of the shotgun. Cook is prohibited from possessing firearms due to a 2007 conviction for aggravated battery in Owyhee County, Idaho, a felony offense punishable by a term of imprisonment exceeding one year.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Caldwell Police Department.
