Two Tahlequah residents were sentenced for firearm and ammunition possession in federal court in Muskogee on Aug. 12.

Jack Dewayne Neugin, 50, was sentenced to 60 months in prison and three years of supervised release for possession of a firearm and ammunition.

The indictment alleged that in April 2018, he was previously convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, but he knowingly possessed a firearm - a Hatfield single-shot 20-gauge shotgun.
