29-year-old Tampa man, Andron McKinney, has been sentenced to seven years and eight months in federal prison for possessing a firearm and ammunition as a convicted felon.
McKinney had pleaded guilty on November 29, 2019.
According to court documents, subsequent to a traffic stop, law enforcement officers searched the car that McKinney had been driving and found a loaded pistol underneath the driver’s seat. McKinney’s fingerprint was found on the magazine inside the pistol. At the time, McKinney had multiple prior convictions for narcotics-related felonies and domestic violence felonies and is therefore prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition.
