Armed Felon Sentenced In Federal Court

 United States Attorney, Kenyen R. Brown announced Johnnie Lee Parks, 43, of Mobile, was sentenced today in federal court to 33 months imprisonment for his illegal possession of a firearm. Parks was previously convicted of possession of marijuana first when he was found in possession of a handgun under suspicious circumstances. United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed the sentence this morning.

Judge Steele ordered that Parks undergo mental health and drug abuse treatment, and that he serve a three-year term of supervised release when he is released from custody.   The judge did not impose a fine, but did order that Parks pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.

The case was investigated by the Mobile Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney's Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
