A 22-year-old Carbondale man was convicted Thursday of a Class 3 felony charge of unlawful use of weapons by a felon, according to a news release from Jackson County State's Attorney Michael Carr.

Carbondale Police Department detectives in June staged a purchase of an illegal firearm from a targeted individual, according to the release. During that purchase, Dayshawn M. Holmes was seated next to the target with two handguns, providing "security" for the deal, the release states. 

Holmes has two prior felony burglary convictions and is prohibited from possessing a firearm, the release states.

Holmes was convicted of the unlawful possession charge following a three-day jury trial, and remains in the custody of the Jackson County Sheriff. He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of two to 10 years in state prison.
