A Clinton man pleaded guilty to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Darren LaMarca and Special Agent in Charge Kurt Thielhorn of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

According to court documents, Stanley Cavett, Jr., 35, was found in possession of a firearm by a Clinton Police officer on November 5, 2019. Cavett has multiple prior felony convictions. As a convicted felon it is contrary to federal law for Cavett to possess any firearm.

On February 8, 2022, a federal grand jury indicted Cavett for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

Cavett will be sentenced on April 5, 2023 in U.S. District Court in Jackson. He faces a maximum penalty of ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine. A federal district judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This case was investigated by the ATF and the Clinton Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jessica S. Terrill.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
