A Comanche County jury found a 23-year-old man guilty of gun and gang charges following two days of trial.
On Tuesday in Comanche County District Judge Jay Walker’s courtroom, Quamail Quameer Willis, a.k.a., Quameil Quameek Willis was found guilty of felony charges of possession of a firearm after delinquent adjudication and gang-related offense, as well as misdemeanor charges of one count of obstructing an officer and possession of controlled dangerous substance, records indicate. He was found not guilty of a second count of obstruction.
The jury recommended Willis serve five years in prison for each felony count.
Willis’ conviction stem from an attempted arrest on Sept. 24, 2020. According to the probable cause affidavit, Lawton police officers saw a Chevrolet Malibu traveling east on Cache Road with Willis driving. Willis is a known member of the Neighborhood 90 Crip gang, as well as the “BBA Taliban,” according to police and at that time he was wanted for multiple active felony warrants.
Willis fled following a traffic stop and was seen jumping a fence while dumping a handgun, which was recovered by police.
Willis was arrested later that night during a traffic stop. When he was taken to jail, a bag containing five whole Alprazolam pills and two halves were recovered, according to police.
Investigators believe Willis was running because he was wanted for felony charges of shooting into a dwelling and possession of a firearm after delinquent adjudication. He was scheduled to begin trial in September 2023 for that case, however, during jury selection, the charge for weapons possession after prior adjudication was read by the judge during case instruction and a mistrial was ruled. It is scheduled for the April/May jury trial docket.
Willis requested delayed sentencing following a pre-sentencing investigation. He will be formally sentenced at 11 a.m. Feb. 6, records show.
