A 41-year-old man from Beaumont has been sentenced after allegedly violating firearm laws.
According to court records, the man plead guilty in September 2011 and has now been sentenced to 43 months in prison after going to court in the Eastern District of Texas.
The man plead guilty to an incident that occurred in September 2010 when his parole officer was called and told that the man had a firearm and was threatening to commit suicide.
The parole officer was then told that he could enter the man’s house and a .44 caliber rifle was found in his closet. The man was already a convicted felon at the time and federal law states that convicted felons are not allowed to possess firearms or ammunition.
