Wilburton man gets 41 months federal prison time

McALESTER — A Wilburton man was recently sentenced to serve 41 months of federal prison time for a federal firearm conviction.

Cesar Cazarez, 45, of Wilburton, received the prison sentence Jan. 30 for being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a press release from the Eastern District of Oklahoma U.S. Attorney’s Office. “The charge arose from an investigation by the Latimer County Sheriff’s Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms,” the release states.

Cazarez was indicted in June and pleaded guilty to the charge in July. According to the press release, Cazarez, a felon, was in possession of a Taurus PT738 .380 caliber pistol in Dec. 15, 2011.

U.S. Attorney Ryan Roberts represented the United States in the case and District Judge Ronald A. White presided over the hearing.

Cazarez’s prison sentence is to be followed by three years of supervised release and he will remain in the “custody of the United States Marshal Service pending transportation to the designated federal prison at which he will serve his nonparolable sentence,” the press release states.
