Michigan City man sentenced to 7 years for being a felon in possession of a firearm

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – A Michigan City man was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

Colton Crawford, 33, was sentenced to seven years in prison followed by two years of supervised release.

During a stop in August 2020, police found a handgun, magazines, and a holster, which DNA verified Crawford possessed, according to case documents.

A June 2015 conviction in La Porte County prohibits Crawford from possessing any firearm and/or ammunition.
