OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A federal grand jury in North Mississippi has indicted a convicted felon on a couple of gun charges.

One count against Robert Roy Thompson says he had a .12 gauge shotgun in December 2017 even though he had been convicted of a crime.

The other count says Thompson had a gun that was not registered to him.

Thompson, who is reportedly from Corinth, pleaded not guilty in federal court Tuesday.
