Paducah, KY (Tue 19 Oct 2015) - U.S. Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr., today announced the sentencing of a Christian County, Kentucky convicted felon, by Senior Judge Thomas Russell on Thursday, October 15, 2015 to 96 months in prison for the illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
"This was a dangerous, illegally armed, convicted felon who will serve 96 months in federal prison without the possibility of parole," stated U.S. Attorney John Kuhn. "We will continue to prosecute dangerous felons who illegally possess firearms to ensure the safety of our communities."
Jamie Artez Harris, age 38, pleaded guilty to the charge on June 25, 2015. According to the plea agreement, on August 10, 2014, in Christian County, Harris, being a person who had been convicted in a court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, knowingly possessed a Colt, Model New Army/Navy Revolver (DA38), .38 Caliber and three rounds of .38 ammunition.
Harris was convicted of First-Degree Manslaughter, a felony, on February 17, 1995, in Christian Circuit Court, Christian County, Kentucky; and was convicted of the offenses of First-Degree Trafficking in a Controlled Substance, Cocaine, First Offense, and First-Degree Unlawful Transaction with a Minor, each a felony, on September 29, 2004, in Christian Circuit Court; and was convicted of the offenses of Tampering with Physical Evidence, First-Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance, Cocaine, First Offense, and First-Degree Fleeing or Evading Police, each a felony, on September 27, 2006, in Christian Circuit Court.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Seth Hancock and was investigated by the Hopkinsville Police Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
