A Jackson man was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to court documents, 23-year-old Theophilus Smith, was found to be in possession of a firearm after the Byram and Clinton Police Departments executed a search warrant at a house in Jackson.

While executing the search warrant, three firearms belonging to Smith were located inside the home.

Smith has a prior felony conviction and is therefore prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Smith was indicted by a federal grand jury and he pled guilty on May 31 to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
