Iowa Man Sentenced to Prison After MySpace Pics Tipped Off Officers

A felon in possession . . . on MySpace.

A federal district court sentenced a Cedar Rapids, Iowa man on October 8, 2009, following a guilty plea to a federal gun charge. Gamaliet Figueroa was on probation for gun charges in 2007 when his probation officer discovered pictures on MySpace showing Figueroa holding a rifle and a handgun. When officers searched his home, they found a loaded semiautomatic rifle.
