FAYETTEVILLE -- A man was sentenced to federal prison Monday for illegally possessing a firearm.
Richard Dale Ingram Jr., 31, of Fayetteville, was sentenced to 110 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay a $3,900 fine on one count of felon in possession of a firearm.
Detectives with the 4th Judicial Drug Task Force conducted a search of Ingram's residence on March 28, according to court records. Ingram is a convicted felon currently on state supervision with the Arkansas Department of Correction and, as such, his residence is subject to search at any time.
Ingram attempted to flee out a back window when detectives entered his home and was apprehended. Detectives located an Iver Johnson .22 caliber pistol in the toilet tank in the bathroom during their search. Ingram admitted the firearm belonged to him and that he got it "on the street," according to court documents.
Ingram was indicted by a federal grand jury in April and entered a guilty plea in June.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing.
