Felon, Timothy Wells Sentenced to 37 Months for Possessing 21 Firearms

Last week, Timothy Jason Wells, 31, of Kingman, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Douglas L. Rayes to 37 months’ imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release.  Wells had previously pleaded guilty to one count of felon in possession of a firearm.
