CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa felon toting a sawed-off shotgun in a park after hours has been sent to prison for over 5 years.

Scott Wesley Timmerman, age 56, from Strawberry Point, Iowa, who was found in a park after hours with a sawed-off shotgun was sentenced May 3, 2024, to more than five years in federal prison.

Timmerman received the prison term after a November 1, 2023, guilty plea to one count of possession of a short-barreled shotgun as a previously convicted felon.

In a plea agreement, Timmerman admitted he possessed a short-barreled Winchester shotgun when officers found him in a park after hours. The firearm was not registered to him in the federal registry. Timmerman also had two prior felony convictions in Arizona.

Timmerman was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge C.J. Williams. Timmerman was sentenced to 70 months’ imprisonment and fined $500. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

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

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Patrick Reinert and was investigated by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Clayton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
