OCALA, Fla. (TND) — A Florida man with a long criminal history will be spending at least the next 15 years behind bars.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Craig Antwon Oneal pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm affecting commerce by a convicted felon.

The feds said he was busted with the gun on July 20, 2020.

That day, before the federal case, he faced 20 criminal charges including possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of ammunition by a felon, and 10 counts involving cocaine, and he spent four days and five hours in jail.

ONeal has 20 prior state felony convictions including strong-arm robbery, resisting arrest with violence, sale of cocaine, and burglary of a conveyance.

The 54-year-old faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison, up to life.

Plus, according to the feds, “His extensive prior record also qualifies him for a sentencing enhancement as an Armed Career Criminal.”

A sentencing date has not been set but he won’t be going anywhere, anyway.
