FORT EDWARD — A White Creek man was sentenced to 1 1/2 years in state prison for possessing an illegal rifle.

Daniel Slocum, 33, was arrested in March after troopers found him to have a semiautomatic rifle that was deemed an illegal assault weapon because of its features, as well as a magazine that holds more than seven rounds.

Slocum is barred from owning weapons because of his criminal record.

He pleaded guilty in Washington County Court in November to felony third-degree attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He also must serve 2 1/2 years of post-release supervision when his sentence concludes.
