Felon In Possession Of A Firearm Sentenced In Federal Court

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Anthony Odell Lee, 33, of Millry, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court this morning for his illegal possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a prior felony offense.  In September of 2016, Lee pled guilty to the charge.

United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed a sentence of 30 months’ imprisonment in Lee’s case, and ordered that he served a three-year term of supervised release when he is discharged from incarceration.  As conditions of his supervision, Lee will be subject to testing and treatment for drug abuse.  Judge Steele also ordered that Lee pay $100 in special mandatory assessments. 

The case was investigated by the Choctaw County Sheriff’s Office 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.
