A Wichita man with a felony conviction was found guilty Tuesday of unlawful possession of a gun.

Michael R. Horn, 42, was found guilty by a jury in federal court of one count of unlawful possession of a Bersa .380 caliber handgun and one count of unlawful possession of 10 rounds of ammunition for the gun, according to a news release by U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office. He was found with the gun and ammunition in September.

Federal law prohibits Horn from having a gun and ammunition because he was convicted on a felony charge of aggravated battery in 2004 in Sedgwick County District Court. His sentencing date will be set later.
