Michigan City man sentenced to 15 years for possessing firearm

A Michigan City man was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the US Attorney's Office.

Daniel Boush, 29, will also serve 2 years supervised release.

“This fifteen year sentence sends a strong message that my Office will pursue and prosecute armed career criminals to the fullest extent of the law. My Office has no tolerance for convicted felons possessing firearms, particularly when these individuals also have a history of domestic violence," said US Attorney Thomas L. Kirsch II.

In August 2019, Boush was arrested for possessing two .380-caliber firearms after a domestic incident.

Kirsch said Boush qualifies as an Armed Career Criminal based on his prior convictions.

“ATF, in partnership with local and state law enforcement, will continue to pursue dangerous criminals to ensure they do not illegally possess firearms,” said Special Agent in Charge Kristen de Tineo of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for the Chicago Field Division.  “Coordination of these investigations, in combination with the prosecutorial strategies at the U.S. Attorney’s office, will deter felons and make communities safer.”
