Kannapolis man convicted as habitual felon

Published 12:00 am Friday, May 24, 2013

A Kannapolis man was convicted this week as a habitual felon and could serve nearly 11 years in prison.
Timothy Wayne Sartain was convicted of felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and the status of being a habitual felon, the Rowan County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
He was sentenced to a minimum of 101 months and a maximum of 131 months in prison.
On Nov. 8, 2008, the Kannapolis Police Department was dispatched to East 12th Street in reference to a shooting. Officers determined through the investigation that Sartain and another person had been in an altercation at Sartain’s residence.
Following the altercation, Sartain fired a gun at the other person as the individual was walking down the road. The bullet did not strike the targeted person; however, officers believed the bullet fragment ricocheted off the pavement and then struck a bystander in the roadway.
Officers went to Sartain’s house, where they found a rifle behind the front door. Sartain was subsequently arrested and admitted that he had fired another gun in an attempt to scare the individual.
Officers returned to Sartain’s residence and located a shotgun that had been hidden behind a china cabinet.
Sartain was previously convicted of the felonies of larceny, attempted possession of stolen goods and possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance.
“This case is another example of a convicted felon who should not have been in possession of a firearm.” Rowan County District Attorney Brandy Cook said in the news release.
Cook said that “due to the thorough investigation by the Kannapolis Police Department, the defendant will serve a lengthy prison sentence as a result of his actions.”
