Charlotte Felon Returns to Prison for 15 Years for Gun Possession

From The Charlotte Observer by Cameron Steele, January 24, 2013

A Charlotte man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday for keeping a loaded .22-caliber revolver in his car while he was a convicted felon.

Ramsey Dean Lewis, 44, was charged with one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in July 2011 after authorities found the gun in his car when he was in an accident, court records show.

Lewis pleaded guilty to the charge in December 2011. His prior felony convictions prohibit him from carrying a weapon, which caused him to be sentenced as an armed career criminal.

Lewis has been in federal custody since July 2011. He will be transferred to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, according to a Department of Justice news release. All federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole.
