Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that Timothy Davis, Jr., 47, of East St. Louis, Illinois, was sentenced in federal district court in East St. Louis for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and for Distribution of a Controlled Substance to 37 months in federal prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, a $200 special assessment, and a fine of $500. The sentencing judge also ordered forfeiture of the firearm and ammunition.

Davis was previously convicted of Unlawful Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.

The case was investigated by members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen B. Clark.
