PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The U.S. attorney's office says a man with 10 felony convictions has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after threatening a couple in the parking lot of southeast Portland convenience store.
Prosecutors say 34-year-old Sid Edward Willis Jr. served 10 years on drug charges and had been out for two months in May 2012 when he showed a handgun to a woman parked in her car and then pointed it at her boyfriend's face.
The couple left the store. Police arrested Willis down the street and seized a loaded .357-caliber revolver.
He was accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm as an armed career criminal and pleaded guilty in July.
U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall said he was sentenced under terms of the Armed Career Criminal Act.
