A South Dakota man has pleaded guilty to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson announced that 52-year-old Jess Porras, of McLaughlin, pleaded guilty to the charge earlier in the week.
Prosecutors say Porras was acting as a deer hunt guide on tribal land in December 2011 when he grabbed a gun from a hunter and shot a deer.
Porras had been previously convicted of a felony in 1994.
Porras faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is set for April 29.
