A Dawson Springs man convicted of manslaughter over 25 years ago is going to spend more time in jail on gun charges.
Forty-nine year old Kevin Fitzgerald of Dawson Springs pled guilty in federal court to charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. A news release says a search warrant executed at his home turned up guns and ammunition in December of 2012.
Fitzgerald had been convicted in 1986 on manslaughter charges and was not allowed to have guns. He was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for the recent gun charges.
