U.S. District Judge Stephen R. Clark sentenced Antwon Fulton, a convicted felon, to over 13 years in prison after he was found with a rifle and methamphetamine. The sentencing occurred on Wednesday.

On May 6, 2021, Fulton was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by officers from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department due to the absence of a front license plate and an expired temporary tag on the rear. During the stop, officers discovered a Chinese SKS semi-automatic rifle in the back of the vehicle, which was in Fulton’s possession, along with 27.05 grams of methamphetamine located in the vehicle’s center console. Given Fulton’s status as a convicted felon, he is prohibited from possessing firearms.

Fulton, 33, from St. John, Missouri, had admitted guilt in December to charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The case was investigated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, with Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Goeke leading the prosecution.
