A Sioux City man has been sentenced to 4 years and two months in federal prison.
21-year-old Victor Chavarria received the prison term after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
Prosecutors say Chavarria was a user and distributor of marijuana who possessed firearms and ammunition in his drug trafficking.
One of the handguns had been stored under a mattress upon which a 3-year old child was sleeping.
Evidence also revealed Chavarria has a history of domestic violence.
On one occasion, he and another male handcuffed a victim, held her against her will and used an electric trimmer to shave her head.
