BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A New Town man has been sentenced to five years and 10 months in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Authorities say 46-year-old Brazil Faheem Alameen was sentenced on Tuesday. Alameen, who also goes by Ronald White, pleaded guilty to the charge in April.

Authorities say law enforcement officials executed a search warrant in 2009 looking for firearm and found one, along with ammunition.

Alameen was prohibited from having a gun based on previous convictions for felony assault.
