Convicted Vt. felon gets 18 months in gun case

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont office of the United States attorney says a 23-year-old Enosburgh Falls man is going to spend 18 months in prison after being convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Ean Fisher-Morrison, of Enosburgh Falls, was sentenced by Judge J. Garvan Murtha.

Court records say that in the spring of 2011 Fisher-Morrison was on furlough for state felony charges of possession of stolen property when he purchased an AR-15 rifle, several large capacity magazines and ammunition from a St. Albans man in exchange for work on the man's sugarbush.

A probation officer late found the rifle outside Fisher-Morrison's home.

Fisher-Morrison was then returned to prison.

The federal sentence will be served at the same time as his state sentence.
