Natchez, MS - Natchez Man Sentenced under Project EJECT to 15 Months in Federal Prison for Receiving a Firearm while under a Felony Indictment

Jarvanti Doss, 22, of Natchez, was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, for receiving a firearm while under a felony indictment.

On August 25, 2017, Jarvanti Keyon Doss was indicted in Adams County for drive-by shooting and two counts of attempted murder. On March 22, 2019, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Adams County Sheriff’s deputies, Natchez Police officers, and probation agents with Mississippi Department of Corrections were conducting a “saturation detail” in high-crime areas when Doss was observed by members of the detail removing a pistol from his pants. After a brief foot chase, Doss was apprehended.

On April 16, 2019, Doss was charged in a federal indictment with receiving a firearm while under an indictment for a felony crime and possessing a firearm as a habitual user of a controlled substance. On June 6, 2019, he pled guilty before Judge Bramlette to receiving a firearm while under a felony indictment.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

This case is part of Project EJECT, an initiative by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Mississippi under the U.S. Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). EJECT is a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to fighting and reducing violent crime through prosecution, prevention, re-entry and awareness. EJECT stands for "Empower Justice Expel Crime Together." PSN is bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.




Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment with the Bureau of Prisons. 3 years supervised release; fine in the amount of $1,500.00. $100.00 special assessment. Defendant in custody and to remain.
