WICHITA, Kan. — A Wichita man is set to spend the next 10 years behind bars after being sentenced on a firearm violation.

Thomas Lee Wohlford, 32, previously pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm following felony convictions. Per details of the plea, Wohlford was arrested in February at a south Wichita Quik Trip store.

A man whose car had been stolen called police, saying he saw a man putting gas in his stolen vehicle. Officers arrived and arrested Wohlford, and also seized a .22 caliber handgun from the car.

During sentencing, a federal judge cited Wohlford's long criminal record, saying he "has been involved in the criminal justice system on a more or less continuous basis since age 15,” and “has no respect for the law.” He then handed down a sentence of 10 years in federal prison.
