Shamokin man in federal prison for violating parole
WILLIAMSPORT - A 26-year-old Shamokin man was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison and had his supervised release revoked for violating his probation.
U.S. District Judge Matthew W. Brann sentenced Shadi Mustafa Abuomar to two years in prison and ordered him placed on supervision for two years upon his release from prison. Terms of his supervised release include not being able to possess a firearm, ammunition, destructive device or any other dangerous weapon, cooperating in the collection of DNA as directed by his probation officer, submitting to a drug test within 15 days of his release from custody and at least two periodic drug tests thereafter, undergoing a substance abuse evaluation and completing an outpatient or inpatient substance abuse treatment program if recommended and undergoing a mental health evaluation and treatment if recommended.
Abuomar was charged by Mount Carmel Township police with possessing a firearm while being a former convict, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession with intent to deliver heroin, criminal conspiracy, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence of a combination of drugs involving a June 2013 vehicle stop along Route 901.
At the time of his arrest, Abuomar was on federal probation after serving six months in federal prison for distributing and possessing with intent to deliver at least five grams of cocaine that stemmed from an arrest by U.S. marshals from Williamsport.
He later entered a guilty plea in Northumberland County Court to drug charges involving the Mount Carmel Township incident.
