TULSA, Okla.—Freddie Allen Hayes, 34, was sentenced to 60 months in prison for being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, announced Danny C. Williams Sr., United States Attorney for the Northern District of Oklahoma. United States District Court Judge Claire V. Eagan also sentenced Hayes to three years of supervised release following his prison sentence.

This case was investigated by ATF and the Tulsa Police Department. Assistant United States Attorneys Neal C. Hong and Gary L. Davis II prosecuted the case.
