STANTON — A 32-year-old Allen man was sentenced to three years in prison Monday following his conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Keith Newman was sentenced by Stanton County District Judge Mark Johnson and was also given a one year prison sentence for felony theft, to be served concurrently.
Newman was arrested in March 2018 by the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office after it responded to a house break-in in progress north of Pilger. Newman was arrested in possession of several firearms that he had just stolen from the Pilger residence, along with a stolen vehicle taken the night before from a Norfolk car dealership.
A co-defendant Lakyne Faimon, 21, of Allen was sentenced earlier to probation for her involvement in the thefts.
