Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- A 26-year-old Buffalo man was sentenced to 40 months in prison and three years of supervised release in U.S. District Court on Wednesday after being convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Steven A. Talley received the sentence from District Court Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard P. Maigret, who handled the case, stated Buffalo Police executed a search warrant in March 2007, at a residence where Talley was staying at the time.

Officers discovered a loaded .22 long rifle caliber semiautomatic pistol and a loaded 9 mm caliber semiautomatic pistol. DNA recovered from the firearms was determined to be Talley’s DNA. The defendant had previously been convicted of a felony offense and has other, unrelated felony offenses pending against him in state court.
