ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former convicted felon who brought a firearm to a Roswell high school graduation last year has been sentenced to federal prison.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for New Mexico says 32-year-old Brandon Warford received a sentence of three years and one month Tuesday in federal court in Las Cruces.

Warford will also have to serve two years of supervised release for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Prosecutors say school district officials notified Roswell police that Warford had a gun at the ceremony.

Warford was previously convicted of burglary in 2002 and being a felon in possession of a firearm in 2008.

He was charged in May 2014 of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He pleaded guilty last January.
