LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man serving prison time for an aggravated assault charge now faces a federal charge after a grand jury indicted him on a gun violation.

According to the indictment, Paul Randall Rhoden, 49, owned two guns, both .22-caliber rifles, despite being a convicted felon.

Angelina County judicial records show Rhoden was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on May 8, 2011. The indictment alleges Rhoden had the guns in the same time period.

Rhoden pleaded guilty to the charge on June 5, accepting a nine-year prison sentence.

He was transferred to the Angelina County Jail on July 6, to face the federal charge. He is scheduled for an initial appearance on July 10.

Rhoden has previous felony convictions of delivery of a controlled substance, arson and fraudulent mechanic lien.
