A Jefferson City man was sentenced Thursday to 12 years in federal prison for illegally possessing firearms.
Tremaine Cordell Smith, 28, was arrested and charged in the case after police saw photos that he posted on his Facebook page.
During a search of his home, police recovered two stolen 9mm handguns, including one that appeared to be the same gun Smith was holding in one of the Facebook photos.
Smith pleaded guilty earlier this year to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
