WICHITA, KAN. - A convicted felon was sentenced Tuesday to 77 months in federal prison for illegally possessing four firearms, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Matthew Lee Fleming, 28, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of firearms following felony convictions. He was on parole in a state district court case when law enforcement officers searched his home in Wichita.
