Mississippi Inmate to Appeal 15-Year Sentence

By  | 

Jackson, Miss.

Federal court records say a convicted felon sentenced to 15 years for having a gun wants to appeal the case.

Rickey Lee Scott was charged in August 2008 with being a convicted felon in possession of a .38 caliber pistol in Hinds County.

He pleaded guilty in September 2013 and was sentenced Dec. 20 in U.S. District Court in Jackson to serve 15 years in prison.

His lawyer, in a court filing late last week, requested more time to file the notice of appeal.
