CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa woman who purchased a gun for her boyfriend and purchased at least four other guns was sentenced to nearly three years in federal prison.
Lisa Marie Good, age 42, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the prison sentence after a July 7, 2022 guilty plea to making false statement during the purchase of a firearm.
Information disclosed at sentencing and at her plea hearing showed that between November 2020 and August 2021, Good purchased at least five firearms from businesses in the Cedar Rapids area. During at least one purchase, Good lied on the ATF Form 4473 and represented that the firearm was for her when in fact the firearm she was buying the gun for her boyfriend. Good’s boyfriend was a felon and prohibited from possessing firearms. Good knew this at the time she purchased the gun for him. Another firearm that Good purchased during this time was recovered from another individual, also a felon. Officers searched Good’s residence and located a firearm, over 90 ecstasy pills, cash, and a digital scale. Good admitted that she not only used the ecstasy pills, but also sold them. To date, officers have not recovered two of the firearms Good purchased.
Good was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Good was sentenced to 34 months’ imprisonment. She must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system. Good will have to pay $100 to the special assessment fund.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ashley Corkery and investigated by the Cedar Rapids Police Department, Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives.
