Man sentenced for weapons

A federal judge has sentenced a Baltimore County man to serve almost two decades in prison for being a felon in possession of body armor and weapons.

U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis sentenced Matthew Troy Evans, 38, of Rosedale to 19 1/2 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release after his conviction for possession of a firearm, body armor and ammunition by a convicted felon.

The judge lengthened Evans' prison term after finding that Evans is an "armed career criminal," a designation based on three previous convictions for violent felonies or drug offenses.
