CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - A drug user and felon who possessed a firearm was sentenced to two years in federal prison on Tuesday.

61-year-old John Douglas Clark received the prison term after a guilty plea to one count of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person in July 2021. Clark brought an AR-15 style rifle to his place of employment, where he was observed on security camera handling and kissing it.

Clark had previously been convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine, and as a meth user and felon, was prohibited from possessing firearms.

Clark was sentenced to two years imprisonment and must also serve three years of supervised release after the term.
