64 months for man in drug, gun, counterfeit case

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Metairie man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison in a case involving a weapon, counterfeit money and drugs.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in New Orleans said Wednesday that 33-year-old David Outlaw was sentenced to 64 months by U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle.

Court records show Outlaw illegally possessed and sold a sawed-off rifle, counterfeit currency and methamphetamine to undercover agents in November 2011.

Outlaw was also sentenced for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
