A Carbondale, Illinois man has been sentenced on gun related charges.

Travis D. Bailey, 30, was sentenced on Dec. 16 for a federal firearm violation according to United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton.

Bailey had pleaded guilty to a one-count indictment of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon.

He was sentenced to 84 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, and fined $200.

According to the state's attorney, evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings showed on March 7, Carbondale police officers performed a search warrant at Bailey's Carbondale home.
