United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, man convicted of Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person, was sentenced on November 26, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Antonio Siers, age 22, was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, a $1,000 fine, and forfeiture of two firearms.
Siers was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 15, 2018.  He pled guilty on September 5, 2018.

Law enforcement made contact with Siers and a co-defendant during the middle of a drug transaction, where the 2 firearms and 14 grams of methamphetamine were seized.
Siers was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
