Memphis residents sentenced for federal gun charge in Sequoyah County

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Memphis residents were sentenced to prison for conspiracy to commit federal firearm offences.

Andria Victoria Dowdy, 22, was sentenced to 42 months in prison for conspiring to violate federal firearms offences, including unlawful possession of a silencer and unlawful possession of non-serialized firearms.

Charges against Dowdy arose after a probe by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

On Dec. 29, 2021, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop and discovered Dowdy, Jemarcus Maquel Williams, and Anfernee Deshon Sherrod in possession of six firearms with large capacity magazines and an unserialized silencer.

All three individuals entered guilty pleas and Williams and Sherrod were sentenced to 60 months in prison.

“According to investigators, the trio conspired to obtain firearms in the state of Oklahoma,” a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office stated.

Honorable Judge David C. Joseph presided over the sentencing hearing and Assistant United States Attorney Edith Singer prosecuted the case.
