WATERLOO -- A Waterloo man was sentenced to federal prison Tuesday after he plead guilty to possessing a handgun while being convicted twice of a felony and being a methamphetamine user.

Gage Tyler Bondy, 22, of Waterloo, was sentenced to 77 months in prison, or more than six years, in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids. He was also sentenced to 3 years of supervised release.
