LONDON – A Perry County man was sentenced this week to serve more than three years in a federal prison.
Paul Michael Ison, 37, was indicted by a federal grand jury in June 2011 on allegations that detectives with the Kentucky State Police located three firearms inside his home on Campbell Fork Drive while executing a search warrant stemming from a separate charge. Ison was convicted in a prior felony case, and was prohibited from possessing any firearms.
According to federal court records, Ison initially pleaded not guilty, but was rearraigned in federal court in London on October 27, 2011, at which time he entered a guilty plea to one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Ison was sentenced on that charge on Tuesday, April 17, to 41 months in prison, according to a release from the Kentucky State Police. He was remanded into federal custody following the sentencing.
Ison is the grandson of the late Roy Campbell, a prominent Perry County land developer who, along with his wife, Wanda, was slain at their home in Brownsfork in November 2010. Their murders remain unsolved.
