CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa child found a gun bought by a woman for a felon, then used it to shoot a bullet through their chin, resulting in probation for the buyer.

Jamie Marie Graham, age 23, from Waterloo, Iowa, received a term of probation after a June 25, 2021 guilty plea to one count of making a false statement during the purchase of a firearm.

Court records reflect that Graham met Dmontrey Redmond in late October 2020. Redmond was a felon and could not legally possess or purchase firearms, but Graham agreed to purchase two guns for him in early December 2020. Graham and Redmond entered a gun store in Waterloo, where Redmond selected two pistols and Graham purchased them, using a cash card provided to her by Redmond. After she purchased the pistols, Graham gave them to Redmond. One of the pistols was eventually given to, or purchased by, individuals in Cedar Rapids. Those individuals left the pistol loaded and unsecured inside their home. On December 23, 2020, their four-year-old child found the loaded firearm and accidentally discharged the weapon. The fired round struck the child through the chin and head area and caused significant injuries. The child survived the injuries. The other firearm Graham purchased has not been recovered. Redmond has pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and is awaiting sentencing.

Graham was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Graham was sentenced to five years’ probation.

The case was investigated by the Cedar Rapids Safe Streets Task Force and Waterloo Police Department. The task force is composed of representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cedar Rapids Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Dan Chatham.

REDMOND, DMONTREY RAYSHAWN

        Compare the death tolls. Which one is the real problem? Whiney minorities? Or paid left wing actors?

          Were they “acting” when they were caught, arrested, appeared in court, cried like babies, denounced Donald, then were sent to prison? Guess you missed that part… come back when you’re caught up in the plot.

        What does, “BLM, BLM, loot riot, unrest, protest, burn it down. Is that how this works?” have to do with storming the Capitol?

          That’s one of their “pre written” responses to anything for next few years. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and you can’t teach a dumb dog anything.

            “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”

            That’s why liberals/Democrats (people like you) call anyone that disagrees with you, “white supremacist or racist”, you have to call names, because you know the facts don’t support your thinking.

            “you can’t teach a dumb dog anything.”

            Which is why liberals/Democrats keep voting for the same old shit, hoping for things to change.
