Frisco City Man Sentenced for Firearm Offense

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Jeremiah Rashaun Tolbert, 29, of Frisco City, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court to 61 months in prison for his illegal possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony.  Judge Kristi K. Dubose imposed the sentence, consisting of 37 months on the gun charge, to run consecutive to a separate term of 24 months.  The second sentence was imposed because Tolbert was under federal supervision from a prior conviction for the identical offense, committed in 2015.  The total prison sentence for this second conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm was 61 months.  The judge ordered another term of supervision to follow his latest conviction of three years, and did not impose a fine.  She ordered that Tolbert pay $100 in special assessments. 


The case was investigated by the Excel Police Department, the Frisco City Police Department, the Clarke County Sheriff’s Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
