Dyersville Felon Sentenced to Prison for Unlawfully Possessing Guns

A convicted felon from Dyersville who unlawfully possessed guns was sentenced Thursday to more than five years in federal prison.

29-year old Allen Osterkamp received the prison term after pleading guilty to being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

At the guilty plea in March, Osterkamp admitted he unlawfully possessed a stolen gun in March 2017. At the sentencing hearing, Osterkamp admitted he actually possessed more than eight guns around that time. Osterkamp had previously been convicted of multiple felony offenses, including possessing a precursor with intent to manufacture meth, operating a motor vehicle without consent, and multiple convictions for theft. He also had two prior convictions for domestic abuse.

In addition to 70 months in prison, Osterkamp must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term.

He is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
