BISMARCK, North Dakota — A North Dakota man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on an illegal weapons charge.

Forty-eight-year-old Samuel Everson III, of Minot, is charged in federal court with possession of firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. He pleaded guilty in September.

Authorities say Everson was pulled over for a traffic violation in January 2013 when officers eventually discovered a loaded handgun.

Another gun was recovered from Everson's residence in October 2013 after police served a federal warrant from Montana for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison in the drug case.

Everson was prohibited from possessing a firearm because of 11 prior felony convictions.
