A man who kept loaded guns in his Tacoma apartment while on community supervision for assaulting a toddler was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years in prison.
U.S. District Judge Benjamin H. Settle found James Quincy Wilkinson, 39, guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm and an armed career criminal in September 2012. For those crimes, Wilkinson received the prison term and five years of supervised release this week.
Wilkinson had been released from prison in 2011 after serving time for critically injuring his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son by punching the baby in the abdomen in 2004, court records show.
While monitoring Wilkinson after his release, the Department of Corrections received reports that he was dealing drugs and had firearms. Corrections officers found crack cocaine in his car and two loaded weapons in his apartment in December 2011, prosecutors said.
The defendant has other prior convictions for burglary, assault and unlawful possession of a firearm.Alexis Krell: 253-597-8268
