City man gets max sentence in gun case


— A Muskogee man was sentenced to federal prison Wednesday and received the maximum sentence allowed, according to a media release.

Thomas Edward Ivy Jr., 31, was sentenced to 120 months in prison to be followed by 36 months of supervised release for possession of a stolen firearm, the release from the U.S Attorney’s Office states.

Charges arose from an investigation by the Wagoner Police Department, the U.S. Marshal Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Violent Crime Task Force. Ivy was indicted in January 2012 and pleaded guilty in August.

The Information alleged that on or about Oct. 15, 2011, Ivy possessed a firearm that had been stolen.

Ivy remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending transportation to the designated federal prison where he will serve his nonparolable sentence.
