LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A Lincoln man will spend three years in federal prison for possessing multiple firearms while using drugs.

U.S. District Court Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Jakerrius Jachun Gill on Tuesday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Gill pleaded guilty on Sept. 20.

He had two encounters with police last year, then had his home searched twice.

On June 2, 2021, a Lincoln Police Department officer found marijuana and counterfeit oxycodone pills in a vehicle Gill was riding in. Gill later admitted to having bought the fake pills in Lincoln, authorities said.

About a month later, Gill was pulled over by LPD. The officer smelled marijuana and searched the car, where he found a .40-caliber handgun underneath the floor mat.

Police executed a search of Gills home on Nov. 16, 2021, and found drug paraphernalia, oxycodone and marijuana.

On Jan. 13, they searched his home again. This time, they seized an AR-style rifle, a pistol, a Glock handgun frame, prescription pill bottles and marijuana.

After his prison term, Gill will spend three years on supervised release.

There is no parole in the federal system.
