LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Tenaha man will spend the next six-and-a-half years in federal prison following his sentencing Wednesday for a firearms violation.

Judge Ron Clark approved the 78-month sentence for Troy Lyles Anderson, 34. Once Anderson is out of prison, he will begin a three-year supervised release.

Anderson pleaded guilty to possession of an unregistered firearm in May. He was originally indicted on other gun charges and a meth charge.

According to a previous report, Anderson escaped the Shelby County Jail in September 2011. Deputies managed to track him down at his brother's house.
