A U.S. District Court judge sentenced 24-year-old Kevin Darnell Williams to 270 months in prison after a jury had convicted him of charges that included possessing and distributing marijuana, shooting a gun during a drug trafficking crime, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Evidence presented at his trial showed Williams, who is also known as “Splash,” set up a marijuana deal in Ames with a man from Boone in August of 2016. He then robbed the man and shot him four times. The man survived the shooting.
Williams was later arrested in Chicago.
