Jerrod Lee, 30, of Taunton, Massachusetts man was sentenced today by U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani to 37 months in prison and three years of supervised release.
Lee was indicted in October 2020 with co-defendant Ronney Fullard. In December 2021, Lee pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
In August 2020, during the execution of an arrest warrant in connection with pending state firearms charges, law enforcement found Lee and Fullard each in possession of a loaded firearm at Lee’s residence.
Specifically, Lee possessed a Ruger .45 caliber pistol, Model P90 loaded with five rounds of .45 caliber ammunition and Fullard possessed a Taurus PT 709 9mm pistol loaded with six rounds of 9mm ammunition. Due to prior felony convictions, federal law prohibits both defendants from possessing firearms and ammunition.
On March 10, 2022, Fullard was sentenced to time served (approximately 14 months) and three years of supervised release after previously pleading guilty to the same charge.
