Description:


Little Rock, Arkansas criminal defense lawyer represented the Defendant charged with Illegally Possessing Firearm

North Little Rock Man Who Illegally Possessed Firearm Sentenced to Over 15 Years In Federal Prison



Kamron Leemonte Mathis, a multi-convicted felon, will spend more than 15 years in federal prison for illegally possessing a firearm. Jonathan D. Ross, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, announced the sentence, which was handed down today by United States District Judge James M. Moody, Jr.

On October 11, 2023, Mathis, 27, of North Little Rock, pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. On Tuesday, Judge Moody sentenced Mathis to 188 months in the Bureau of Prisons to be followed by five years of supervised released. Mathis, whose prior felony convictions all involved firearms, was indicted on December 7, 2022, on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The maximum penalty Mathis faced was not less than 15 years to life in prison and a fine of $250,000. There is no parole in the federal system.

Classified as an armed career criminal, Mathis’ sentence was based on the offense as well as his documented violent criminal history. Mathis has a prior conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm as well as prior convictions for robbery on two different occasions, two counts of aggravated assault, and battery in the first degree.

On June 25, 2022, North Little Rock Police Department officers stopped the vehicle that Mathis was driving because the registration had expired. Mathis, who was on parole at the time of the traffic stop and had a search waiver on file, was asked to step out of the vehicle. During this search of the vehicle, a 9 mm firearm was found under the driver’s seat. Also found were two magazines and approximately 24 rounds of ammunition.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the North Little Rock Police Department.

Outcome:

Defendant was found guilty and sentenced to
188 months in the Bureau of Prisons to be followed by five years of supervised released
