MOODY — A federal judge sentenced a Moody man to 14 years in prison Monday for convictions for felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated identity theft.
Greg Alan McDonald, 40, pleaded guilty to the charges in July.
United States Attorney Jay E. Town said McDonald was known as a repeat offender.
“The revolving door for McDonald is now locked tightly behind him and he will now spend time in a federal prison where there is no sanctuary for parole,” said Town.
McDonald was arrested on March 28, 2019, after officers discovered heroin, methamphetamine, fentanyl, access device-making equipment, in a hotel room. Also in the room, a safe belonging to McDonald, which had four firearms and identification documents belonging to others inside.
Town said McDonald was sentenced to the statutory maximum of 120 months, based on criminal history, followed by a two-year sentence on the aggravated identity theft charge.
United States Secret Service and the Birmingham, Vestavia, Mountain Brook, and Homewood Police Departments investigated the case, which Assistant United States Attorneys Catherine Crosby Long and Blake Milner prosecuted.
