LAFAYETTE, La. –Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that Jeremy Rubin, 32, of Lafayette, Louisiana,
was sentenced today by United States District Judge Robert R. Summerhays to 52 months ( 4years, 4 months) in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release. Rubin pleaded guilty on July 24, 2020 to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. The charge stems from a domestic disturbance call that Lafayette City Police Department officers responded to on August 19, 2018. The caller advised that her boyfriend had threatened her, directed her into a bedroom, placed a handgun to her head and threatened her life. Law enforcement officers arrived at the residence where the call had been placed and questioned Jeremy Rubin about the incident. Rubin denied having a firearm and denied consent for law enforcement officers to search his vehicle. A search warrant was obtained and officers found the firearm and ammunition in a case bearing Rubin’s name in the vehicle. Further investigation by law enforcement officers revealed that the firearm had been reported stolen. Rubin has a previous felony conviction for first degree robbery (2008).
Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of a firearm or ammunition. The
ATF and Lafayette City Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jamilla A. Bynog prosecuted the case.
