Sentencing delay sought in weapons case


HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — An attorney wants a delay in sentencing for one of three brothers charged in a federal weapons investigation.

A court filing says Clarence Lee is waiting for a mental evaluation and his lawyer wants to delay the Feb. 14 sentencing. It's scheduled to take place in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg

Lee was been arrested in Covington County when he conspired with his brothers in November 2011 to have numerous guns and ammunition removed from his house. Clarence Lee was a felon and not supposed to have guns.

The indictment says Isaac and Michael Lee removed the guns from their brother's house and concealed them from police.

Isaac and Michael Lee have pleaded guilty to obstruction.
