WILMINGTON, N.C. -

A Chocowinity man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison and five years of supervised release after committing multiple felonies.

John Albritton, 64, of Chocowinity was sentenced for one count of Possession of Firearms and Ammunition by a Felon and two counts of Distributing a Quantity of Cocaine Base (Crack).

In addition, the Court Ordered the Forfeiture of three shotguns and ammunition and one rifle. On March 8, 2013 Albritton was found guilty, following a three day trial in Wilmington, North Carolina.

After a joint investigation conducted by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) in Washington, North Carolina and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in Wilmington, North Carolina, law enforcement established that Albritton operated an illicit business, Lil' John's Club, from a building adjacent to his residence. At the club, patrons purchased alcohol and drugs from Albritton activity which dated from early 2008 and included numerous citizen complaints to BCSO for noise ordinance violations and assaults.
