Comanche County felon sentenced to 17.5 years in federal prison

LAWTON, Okla._A convicted felon from Comanche County was sentenced to 17-and-a-half years in federal prison this week on a gun charge.

 Florentino Villanueva, Junior, was under investigation late last year for a meth ring in the Comanche County area. A search of his home in Lawton, uncovered a 40-caliber pistol.

Further investigation revealed Villanueva had been convicted for drugs, robbery, and assaulting a police officer, which bans him from owning a weapon. He pleaded guilty in November.

This week, at his sentencing hearing, the judge ruled that Villanueva's previous criminal history increased his minimum punishment to 15 years. He was also sentenced to five years probation after his release.
