Anamosa Felon Convicted of Possessing Firearms and Ammunition

An Anamosa felon with domestic abuse convictions who possessed firearms and ammunition has been convicted by a jury.

41-year old Douglas Hurt was found guilty on Thursday after a one-and-a-half-day trial in federal court in Cedar Rapids. Hurt was found guilty of possessing two firearms and ammunition after having been convicted of one felony and three misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence.

Evidence at trial showed that in June 2020, in the cabin where he lived, Hurt possessed a Chinese Type 56 7.62 x 39 mm caliber rifle, a Remington 870 Express Magnum 12-gauge shotgun, and ammunition.

Hurt was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshal after the trial and will remain in custody pending sentencing. He faces up to ten years in prison.
