ABERDEEN, S.D.–An Aberdeen man convicted of Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person was sentenced recently.

Forty six year-old Tujuane Lowry was sentenced to seven years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

Lowry was indicted by a federal grand jury last August. He pleaded guilty in May.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on June 18, 2022, in Aberdeen, when Lowry was observed on video holding a handgun he had pulled from a white tube sock.

He was also observed on the video using methamphetamine.

Lowry is a felon and is prohibited from possessing firearms. The firearm was later recovered by law enforcement and determined to have been stolen.
