P.M. UPDATE: Muskogee teen gets nearly six-year federal sentence



A Muskogee teenager has been sentenced to almost six years in federal prison, according to a media release from the United States Attorney’s Office.

Michael Darrell Mayberry, 19, was sentenced to 70 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Charges arose from an investigation by the Muskogee Police Department, the District 15 District Attorney’s Office, Muskogee County Sheriff’s Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Gang Task Force Initiative. Mayberry was indicted in June 2012 and found guilty by a federal jury in August.

The evidence presented at trial proved that on or about Feb. 22, 2012, in Muskogee, Mayberry, having been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, knowingly possessed a Smith and Wesson .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol.

James H. Payne, chief judge, presided over the hearing. Mayberry will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which he will serve his nonparolable sentence.
