Ocala (WTFF). A federal court sentenced Ocala to 30 months after an investigation found that he was armed with ammunition and firearms.
Yesterday, the Justice Department released a press release that described the events.
Ocala resident Michael Guell (37), was admitted to the hospital with “gunshot wounds” on November 28, 2018.
Guell was robbed by unknown assailants and was then confronted by detectives from Ocala Police.
Police found shell casings inside Guell’s vehicle.
He “confessed” that he had drunk in his car and then accidentally shot himself.
The police discovered a semi-automatic pistol in the car of the suspect and 26 bullets.
Guell was convicted of five felonies at the time. These included possession of controlled substances, theft by seizure, and escaping and eluding law enforcement officers. As a convicted felon, Guell is not allowed to possess firearms or ammunition.
He was convicted of two counts of possessing a firearm by an indicted criminal and one count for false reporting to law enforcement agencies. According to prison records, he was released the following day. He was sent back to Marion County Jail on May 9, 2019, as a courtesy of federal law enforcement. He had apparently already moved to Spring Hill by that time, as stated in the booking information.
