Brothers get probation for lying to grand jury

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Two brothers have been sentenced to probation for obstructing justice by lying to a federal grand jury in Gulfport about weapons at a third brother's home in Harrison County.

The Sun Herald reports Michael Lee received four years' probation and Isaac Lee received three years' probation on Tuesday. They were sentenced in Hattiesburg.

Their brother, Clarence Lee II, has pleaded guilty to a firearms violation and is held for sentencing pending a mental evaluation.

The federal case came after Clarence Lee was being held for trial on a cocaine conspiracy and notified someone in November 2011 to alert his brothers about guns in his Harrison County home.

Michael Lee and Isaac Lee have admitted they lied to a federal grand jury about having no knowledge of the guns.
