Rhinelander Man Goes to Federal Prison for Possessing a Gun as a Felon Submitted: 05/06/2013
MADISON - People who commit a felony lose the right to have a gun.

A Rhinelander man who broke that law will spend three years in federal prison.

29 year old Christopher Whittaker had a 22 caliber rifle in his possession in the spring of 2012.

He had previously been convicted of felonies including hijacking a vehicle and child abuse.

He pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm in February.

U.S. district judge Lynn Adleman has now sentenced Whittaker to serve three years in federal prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release.
