A Pamlico County man is sentenced to prison time for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

In January, Styron got into a fight with his girlfriend and pulled out a gun at their home on Windy Trail in New Bern, police said.

Styron also pleaded guilty to assaulting the victim by threatening the use of the gun. He was sentenced to between 15 to 27 months in prison.
