Natchez, Miss. – Lattrick Williams, 26, of Brookhaven, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge David C. Bramlette III to 38 months in federal prison, followed by three years supervised release, for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, announced U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and Special Agent in Charge Kirk Thielhorn with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.  Williams was also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine. 

The case arose after an arrest warrant was executed by the United Stated Marshals Service on October 2, 2018 in McComb, Mississippi, in response to pending charges against Williams out of Lincoln County.  Upon arrival, agents found Williams in possession of a Taurus .380 firearm. Williams has a previous conviction in Lincoln County for sale of marijuana and is prohibited from possessing a firearm. 

On November 6, 2018, Williams was charged in a federal criminal indictment with being a felon in possession of a firearm.  He pled guilty before Judge Bramlette on March 1, 2019.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Candace Mayberry.
