CEDAR RAPIDS -- A 29-year-old man was indicted in U.S. District Court for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Cody Dravenstott of Charles City was detained after the decision was issued May 25. The indictment was unsealed Tuesday, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The indictment alleges Dravenstott possessed a .22-caliber rifle in January. He was convicted in Floyd County in 2002 of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

If convicted, Dravenstott faces a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.

Dravenstott appeared for arraignment Tuesday in Cedar Rapids and was held without bond after a detention hearing Wednesday. His trial is set for July 31.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Bob Teig and was investigated by the Floyd County Sheriff's Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
