Thomas Lee Wohlford on Monday was sentenced to 10 years in a federal prison for a firearm conviction in conjunction with a “long criminal record,” according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office.
Wohlford, 32, was arrested on Feb. 11 on suspicion of possession of a firearm after a felony conviction. He pleaded guilty on Monday.
A man whose car was stolen reported seeing Wohlford filling the vehicle with gas at QuikTrip, 1610 E. Lincoln, where police arrested Wohlford and seized a .22-caliber handgun from the car.
U.S. District Court Judge Monti L. Belot said in court records Wohlford had been involved in the criminal justice system “on a more or less continuous basis since age 15,” and that Wohlford “has no respect for the law,” according to the release.
