Man sentenced on gun charges in Dauphin County

(Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office)

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A man has been sentenced after pleading guilty this summer to gun charges in Dauphin County.

Antwan Jones, 25, will spent 4 to 8 years in a state correctional institution.

He pleaded guilty in July to felony charges of persons not to possess a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license.

Due to a prior robbery conviction in New Jersey when he was 16 years old, Jones was prohibited from possessing a firearm.

The charges for which Jones was sentenced stem from a traffic stop in March in the 400 block of South 17th Street in Harrisburg. Jones was found with a FEG 7.65mm handgun, which had been reported stolen out of Harrisburg in 2015.
