Description: Waterloo, IA - Felony firearm charged criminal defense lawyer represented defendant.
Aundrey Frequal Roberts, Jr., age 26, from Waterloo, Iowa, was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
Information disclosed at sentencing and at his plea hearing showed that in July 2019, Robert’s friend, Dreyon Grant, got into a dispute with another man at an apartment complex in Waterloo after the other man accused Grant of stealing money. When the victim confronted him, Grant came out of his apartment unit holding a knife and pointing it at the victim. After the victim refused to leave, Grant called Roberts. A short time later, Roberts came over with a gun. Grant tried to scare the victim away with the gun. The victim called 911. Police responded and located the gun. No one was injured in the dispute.
Roberts has prior criminal convictions for intimidation with a dangerous weapon, harassment, and assault, among other convictions. Roberts also admitted to being the driver of a vehicle involved in a shooting which left a nine-year old child with a gunshot wound.
Roberts was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Roberts was sentenced to 112 months’ imprisonment. He was ordered to make payment of $100 to the special assessment fund. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
