A 39-year-old Jacksonville man was found guilty last week of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Because of his prior criminal history, Daniels is classified as an armed career criminal and faces a mandatory-minimum penalty of 15 years and up to life in federal prison.
Daniels was indicted on July 15, 2010.
According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, in October 2009, Daniels and his girlfriend got into a verbal argument inside of their apartment. The argument eventually moved outside.
Daniels' girlfriend called out for help, yelling that Daniels had a gun. One of the neighbors called 911.
Officers from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded and saw Daniels walking with his girlfriend in the parking lot. After making eye contact with one of the officers, Daniels ran behind an annex building and threw the gun over a nearby fence.
Daniels was detained by the officers, and the gun was subsequently recovered.
