MINNEAPOLIS — A former St. Cloud man has been convicted of being a felon in possession of a handgun in U.S. District Court.

A federal jury has found 35-year-old Jesse Lamond Jones guilty on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

He was indicted last December after he was arrested in connection with a series of four shootings in St. Cloud. The incidents occurred between April 23rd and May 10th of last year. No one was seriously hurt.

Authorities later arrested Jones on an unrelated warrant. Police say they found a 9-millimeter handgun and ammunition matching the weapon and bullets used in the shooting incidents at his residence.

Because of Jones’ criminal history involving violence and drugs, he will be sentenced under the Armed Career Criminal Act which requires a minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison. A federal judge will determine his actual sentence at a future hearing.
