CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa man who possessed a firearm as a felon was sentenced today to more than three years in federal prison.

Rhamond Bolden, age 27, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the prison term after a July 8, 2020 guilty plea to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Evidence in the case showed that in 2013, Bolden was convicted of being a drug user in possession of a firearm in federal court in Cedar Rapids. The court initially sentenced him to 16 months in prison, but after multiple violations of his supervised release, Bolden ultimately served 30 months in prison. He was released in 2017. During a traffic stop in early 2020, law enforcements officers found him in possession of a loaded handgun.

Bolden was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Bolden was sentenced to 37 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Bolden is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lisa C. Williams and investigated by the Cedar Rapids Safe Streets Task Force. The task force is composed of representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
