A 26-year-old Baltimore man was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison yesterday for being a felon in possession of a firearm, prosecutors said. Alonzo Briscoe, a Baltimore resident, qualified as a "career criminal" because he had been convicted previously in state court of robbery, attempted murder, handgun possession and conspiracy to distribute heroin, according to the U.S. attorney's office. Briscoe was arrested by Baltimore police in 2004 in the 300 block of S. Stricker St. after being stopped for double-parking.
