He pleaded guilty last Dec. 7.

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office:

Jones admitted that on Jan, 11, 2011, he possessed the shotgun, knowing it was stolen. In addition, the shotgun had a barrel less than 18 inches long, which is also against the law. Police recovered the gun after responding to a report of "shots fired" in the area.

This case was the result of an investigation by the Red Lake Tribal Police Department and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
