KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knoxville jury found Rocky Houston guilty Wednesday on federal gun charges.

The jury found Houston guilty of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Sentencing is scheduled on June 26.

Houston was arrested in January 2013 for owning out-of-state guns as a felon. His brother Leon was arrested on a federal gun charge as well.

A federal court jury found Leon Houston not guilty in November 2013. He is currently serving five years in prison for threatening the life of his former attorney.

The two brothers were charged and tried, but never convicted of first degree murder of a deputy and former police officer in 2006.
