XENIA — A Huber Heights man was sentenced in federal court this week to the statutory maximum of 10 years in prison for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
William Prigmore, 37, was convicted by a jury in July 2019 of one count of illegally possessing a firearm and two counts of illegally possessing ammunition as a convicted felon.
In October 2017 law enforcement responded to a complaint on Deer Creek Drive in Xenia, where Prigmore was found in a vehicle with a handgun. The handgun was loaded with seven rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber, according to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio.
Due to multiple past drug convictions, Prigmore is prohibited from possessing firearms. Prigmore was on parole with the State of Ohio when he committed the federal offense.
