HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A New Haven man has been sentenced to prison for illegally possessing a sawed-off shotgun.

Thirty-two-year-old Curtis Gibbs was sentenced Friday to three years and five months in prison followed by three years of probation.

Prosecutors say police were notified in January 2014 that Gibbs had a sawed-off shotgun and a pistol and was trying to sell them for $350.

He eventually sold both firearms. He was arrested on April 23, 2014.

Gibbs pleaded guilty April 7, 2015, to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.

Authorities say Gibbs had several prior felony convictions, including having a weapon in a motor vehicle and assault.
