FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Grand Forks man has been sentenced to seven years in prison on illegal weapons charges.

A jury in June found Christopher Clauthier guilty of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a stolen weapon. Authorities say they found him with a .22-caliber pistol in December 2014.

Clauthier had previous felony convictions for burglary and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and kidnapping.

Clauthier must serve three years of supervised released after his prison term. He was ordered to return the stolen firearm to the owner.

A federal public defender could not be reached for comment Wednesday night.
