Two Sentenced On Federal Gun Charges

Hattiesburg, Miss - Regon Hollis Hill, 32, of Prentiss, and Jonas A. Windham, 31, of Laurel, were both sentenced in federal court this week by U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett in two separate federal firearms cases, U. S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis announced today.

Regon Hollis Hill was sentenced to 60 months in prison, a $6,000 fine and three years of post-release supervision for being a felon in possession of a firearm. The charges arose from a June 24, 2012 stop in Jefferson Davis County when Hill was found in possession of a loaded .45 caliber pistol along with additional 22 rounds of .45 caliber ammunition along with 37 rounds of 9mm ammunition and 33 rounds of .22 caliber ammunition. Hill was found guilty by a bench trial on October 30, 2012.

Jonas A. Windham was sentenced to 78 months in prison, a $1000 fine and three years of post-release supervision for possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of a controlled substance. Windham was charged with selling cocaine and firearms in Jones County on two occasions in February, 2012. Windham was also ordered to forfeit a Taurus revolver, a Winchester shotgun and a Romarm/Cugir rifle.

Both cases were investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics. They were prosecuted by Annette Williams.
