LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Lubbock man has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison for possessing a firearm while being a convicted felon; a firearm he had when officials were investigating him as a suspect in a sexual assault case.

Scotty Dean Justice, 38, is accused of both state and federal crimes. Justice was on federal supervised release back on March 18th for previous convictions.  That's the day Lubbock and Hockley County Sheriff's Deputies accused him of sexual assault only 100 or so feet from the county line. 

Prosecutors accused him of illegally having a firearm at the time of the sexual assault after a U.S. Marshal found the gun during the investigation for the sexual assault.  He was indicted in April for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Court records show that Justice denied the sexual assault, but admitted he possessed a firearm in violation of federal law and in violation of his supervised release. He pleaded guilty to the firearms charge in June. Justice will have to serve a minimum four years for the parole violation.

Friday, the judge handed down his sentence of 71 months behind bars.
